Vitale pumps Dollar for job

Other than Spencer Hawes’ NBA decision, the other still-undefined issue surrounding the Huskies is whether Cameron Dollar will be back as an assistant.
Dollar interviewed for the head coaching job at Long Beach State last week, and until the 49ers hire someone, remains in the running for the job.
Here’s a story from Frank Burlison at the Long Beach Press-Telegram stating that a decision could come “early this week” and again listing the four known candidates — Dollar, UCLA assistant Kerry Keating, USC assistant Gib Arnold and former Gonzaga and Minnesota coach Dan Monson.
Burlison then notes that ESPN analyst Dick Vitale apparently called LBSU athletic director Vic Cegles recently to recommend Dollar. (I can already hear the jokes about the irony in that considering it often appears the guys on ESPN don’t even know the Pac-10 plays basketball.)
And it definitely sounds as if Dollar has a lot of friends out there. Here’s another column from the Press-Telegram a few days ago, this one from Bob Keisser, stating that “Cegles has received more references and recommendations for Dollar than anyone.”
