Fortier candidate at Brown?

ESPN’s Andy Katz reports on his Insider blog today that Washington assistant Paul Fortier is among the candidates to become the new head coach at Brown.
That’s the job that was held by Craig Robinson before he became the head coach at Oregon State last month.
Fortier has an in because he spent two years as an assistant at Ivy League rival Cornell from 2003-2005 before coming to UW, helping lay the ground work for a program that last season went undefeated in league play.
Katz says others expected to be on the list of candidates include Illinois assistant Jay Price, Brown assistant Jesse Agel and Williams College head coach Dave Paulson.
Fortier is a former UW player (1982-86) who has spent the last three years as an assistant with the Huskies, his duties including working with the big men.
Fortier replaced Ken Bone, who is the last UW assistant to leave, becoming the head coach at Portland State after the 2004-05 season.
Katz says interviews are expected to begin this week.
Brown went 19-10 this year, losing in the first round of the CBI to Ohio.
CASTO ELIGIBLE — In some breaking Pac-10 news, Scout.com is reporting that DeAngelo Casto of Ferris High has achieved a qualifying score on his ACT and should be eligible to play for Washington State next season.
