Dollar candidate at Sacramento State?

Several recent newspaper reports in the Sacramento area have listed Husky assistant Cameron Dollar as a candidate for the vacant head coaching position at Sacramento State, and a source said tonight that he is still in the running for the job and may soon interview.
Sacramento State is a member of the Big Sky Conference and fired Jerome Jenkins earlier this month after he compiled an 80-147 record in eight seasons.
Here’s a recent story from the Sacramento Bee that mentions Dollar and also talks about the financial challenges the school faces in putting together a competitive program (the story also mentions UW assistant Jim Shaw as a possible candidate but he isn’t thought to be involved any longer)
Also apparently a serious candidate is Brian Katz, head coach at Delta JC in nearby Stockton, as detailed in this story.
Dollar has been a candidate for several jobs in recent seasons, most seriously last year at Long Beach State when he was one of three finalists for that job before the school hired former Gonzaga coach Dan Monson.
The 32-year-old Dollar has been an assistant at UW for all six years of the Lorenzo Romar regime, and was also an assistant for Romar at Saint Louis. He has a lot of ties to California, having played at UCLA and worked as an assistant at UC-Irvine and head coach at Southern California College, an NAIA school.
