According to a report, VCU’s Shaka Smart will stay at the school, and not cash in on the team’s Cinderella run to the Final Four.

In only his second year at VCU, Smart and the 11th seeded Rams defeated some of college basketball’s biggest programs on their way to Houston: a 59-46 win over Southern California, a 74-56 win over Georgetown, a 94-76 win over Purdue, a 72-71 win over Florida State and a 71-61 win over Kansas.

According to the report, Smart met with officials from NC State, but a formal over was never made.
