It looks like you can put the speculation to bed.

A report came out Monday linking Arizona State basketball coach Herb Sendek to the opening at Wake Forest.

As a guest of the Dan Bickley Show with Vince Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Tuesday, Sendek dispelled any notion that he could be leaving Tempe for the job.

"I am not in play for Wake Forest," he said. "I am a Sun Devil. I couldn't be more excited about the guys we have on our team, where our program is going.

"I'm looking forward, immensely, to working with (new AD) Ray Anderson. So I'm very happy here at Arizona State."

Sendek just finished his eighth season at ASU, guiding the Devils to the NCAA Tournament for the second time.

He has a 140-110 record at the school, and including his time at NC State and Miami, has a 395-276 record with eight NCAA Tournament appearances in 21 seasons.
