Syracuse AD John Wildhack told ESPN he found out about Mike Hopkins leaving for Washington mid-afternoon on Saturday. "There was a signed contract in place for Mike to assume the head coaching position after next year -- and one in place for Jim's deal to expire." Wildhack said he went to Jim Boeheim after Hopkins told him he was leaving. "Once I knew Mike was leaving, there was a head coaching vacancy after next year. I wanted to get the best person to fill it, and decided Jim was the best person. That was my recommendation to the chancellor. I wanted to move fast, to make sure there was continuity in place."
