Dollar interviews at Long Beach State

After his name was bandied about as a potential candidate at Long Beach State last week, Cameron Dollar was officially contacted over the weekend and interviewed with school officials there on Monday.
Here’s our story with more details from today’s paper.
One note that didn’t make it in the paper is that Washington will host Long Beach State next season. So if Dollar gets the job, he’ll have a quick reunion with the Huskies.
While there are five rumored names of candidates, including that of former Gonzaga and Minnesota coach Dan Monson, one person told me they think the two favorites are Dollar and UCLA assistant Kerry Keating.
Here’s more on the Long Beach State job from Frank Burlison at the Long Beach Press-Telegram. Frank also includes his All-Southern California high-school all-star teams with Justin Holiday making the second team and Jrue Holiday as the Junior of the Year.
— Players are due back from spring break this week and will begin spring workouts with coaches as allowed by NCAA rules (players can work out for short periods in small groups). Word is that Spencer Hawes is expected to participate, though this isn’t necessarily a sign of his ultmate intentions but just Hawes leaving his options open until he makes a final decision. One person told me today, however, that it isn’t expected Hawes would hire an agent until the very end of the process, saying that a potential scenario is that Hawes will decide to go through some of the pre-draft workout stuff, then make his final decision close to the June 18 deadline to pull out.
— Joe Wolfinger isn’t expected to participate in the spring workouts and there is beginning to be some concern about his long-term status. Wolfinger missed the season with a stress fracture in his foot but his is a different injury than that of Joel Smith, who also missed the season with a stress fracture but has returned. Wolfinger has a navicular bone injury (Smith had a metatarsal injury), and those can be dicey for big men. Wolfinger has attempted to rehab without surgery (there was a point where surgery was planned but then when it began to heal better, it was called off). For now, the hope is still that Wolfinger will be back in time for the trip to Greece in August. But the next few months loom critical for Wolfinger’s future.
