It looks as if the window to get Butch Jones at Purdue is closing. multiple reports have stated that his scheduled 5:30 local time departure has been delayed. He was scheduled to leave at 7:30pm Indiana/Ohio time, so this is probably not a good sign for the Boilers:

He is not on the plane back, as reported:
A private plane left Cincinnati on Monday morning at 7:58 a.m. Mountain time and arrived at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport near Broomfield at 11 a.m. The aircraft pulled into a private hangar. There is a flight scheduled to leave Rocky Mountain Airport at 5:30 p.m. Monday to go to Cincinnati but Jones is still in Boulder.
While the Butch Jones wait is on, a source tells us Kent State coach Darrell Hazell is 'in play' for #Purdue.— GoldandBlack.com (@GoldandBlackcom) December 4, 2012
