Coaching carousel continues

Lots of coaching news out there today, some of it involving Huskies past and present:
— First, here’s the updated Sacramento Bee story on the coaching search at Sac State. Husky assistant Cameron Dollar will be one of three interviewed for the job, something I also wrote about for today here. With interviews expected to last through next Thursday, this obviously won’t be decided for a week or so.
— The rumors Tony Bennett’s future seem to change by the minute. Vince Grippi has a good roundup of all the Bennett-related material here. Most interesting may be this story from the San Francisco Chronicle that says could be a serious candidate for the Cal job. You’ll note a lot of these stories point out that Bennett’s sister, Kathi, coached at Indiana. Few of them point out that association didn’t end so well and I’ve heard that history could play a role in whether Bennett would be interested.
Paul Buker of the Oregonian has this update on the OSU coaching search, reporting that multiple sources have told him the Beavers may have given Randy Bennett a lower-than-expected offer to become the new coach at Oregon State. If so, that could lead to the school turning to former UW assistant Ken Bone who is now at Portland State.
Brooks Hatch of the Corvallis Gazette-Times has his own thoughts on the OSU coaching search. He also throws out a scenario I’ve before — if the WSU job comes open, Bone could be a candidate for that, as well. WSU AD Jim Sterk was an associate AD at Seattle Pacific when Bone was hired as head coach there.
— Finally, Lute Olson talked about his reasons for taking a leave of absence this season. The Arizona Republic has this report here
and here’s the original ESPN story.
