Minnesota coaching search

Some of the names associated with Minnesota's coaching search include Nevada's Mark Fox, Southern Illinois' Chris Lowry, New Mexico State's Reggie Theus and Denver Nuggets assistant Mike Dunlap. Among that group, Fox and Lowry are the hottest names although Theus is intriguing because of his ties to the NBA and to Louisville where he was an assistant under Rick Pitino.

Detroit Pistons coach Flip Saunders, the former Minnesota Timberwolves coach and former Golden Gopher, is the candidate the university wants and sources said they are preparing a lucrative package. The Pistons are expected to make a long run in the playoffs and Minnesota could hire someone in the interim - like former Gophers All-American Trent Tucker - to oversee the program until the Pistons season is completed.
