Report: Huggins up for USF job
Former UC coach Bob Huggins is in the mix to become South Florida's next head basketball coach, according to a report posted on SI.com Monday.
The Web site said Huggins' attorney, Richard Katz, has had a number of conversations with USF boosters.
"... there is really a groundswell here amongst some of the core guys to bring Huggins in," a USF booster told SI.com.
The Bulls, who are 6-21 overall, and 0-14 in the Big East, will not qualify for the conference tournament, which starts March 8. USF coach Robert McCullum is not expected to return.
According to SI.com, there are roadblocks: USF president Judy Genshaft is said to be good friends with UC president Nancy Zimpher.
