Last I heard it was close to a done deal with CSC. They were just looking for a co-sponser to take over for Tiscali. Supposedly the Deutche Post was going to take over if Ullrich was brought in. Ullrich thinks very highly of Riis. I would be schocked if he were to go elsewhere.

Kelme and Coast are also interested in him (nm).husker

The latest Pro Cycling said CSC Tiscali did finally find the additional sponsorship needed to sign Ullrich.
CSC, Coast, PhonakMRS

Ullrich hasn't signed yet. Although he has said that he preferred CSC, Bjarne Riis can't find a co-sponsor. Deutsche Post is not going to give any money, so CSC is still looking. Coast made Ullrich an offer, and apparently there have been talks with Phonak. Ullrich's manager said last week that Ullrich won't go to Kelme and that CSC and Coast are the only real alternatives. I remember that Jalabert didn't sign with CSC until late December when he left ONCE, so there is still a chance that Ullrich and Tyler Hamilton will be on the same team next year.
No, and today's report from the fatherland...seyboro

...states that both teams Ullrich could possibly sign with are having major trouble to meet the UCI's deadline for getting bank guarantees for their budgets. As a matter of fact, CSC are still 3 million Euro in the hole and COAST still haven't paid for all of last year's bill. My, my, when it rains, it pours!!
