RICHMOND, VA - Fans of a college basketball coach don't think he made a 'smart' move by leaving one team to coach another. Shaka Smart, announced he's bouncing out of Virginia Commonwealth University to coach the University of Texas' men's basketball team.

"I didn't know if I would ever leave VCU because of the relationships that I had there with the players and our coaching staff," Smart said during a press conference in Austin on Friday.

Two strip clubs in Richmond, Virginia, Pure Pleasure Club and Club Rouge, brought an offer to the table hoping he'd stay. The clubs offered free unlimited lap dances for coach Smart if he kept his job at VCU.

They thought it was an offer no man could refuse, but it wasn't enough to make him stay.
