Morning links: Cal closing in on a new coach

California athletic director Sandy Barbour reportedly held two interviews with UC Irvine coach Russell Turner, most recently at the NCAA tournament Final Four in Arlington, Texas.

The Golden Bears need to replace Mike Montgomery, who retired with two years remaining on his contract.

Montgomery publicly endorsed associated head coach Travis DeCuire, who Barbour described as a “serious candidate.”

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

— San Francisco Chronicle columnist Ann Killion said Cal could save taxpayers a lot of money by not hiring a firm to find a new coach and just give the job to DeCuire.

Cal’s coaching wish list reportedly includes Gonzaga’s Mark Few, Harvard’s Tommy Amaker, VCU’s Shaka Smart and Arizona assistant coach Joe Pasternack.

— NCAA president Mark Emmert believes unions have no place in college athletics. He said: “You’re either a student playing sports or you’re an employee of a university. It would blow up everything about the collegiate model of athletics.”

— Oregonian columnist John Canzano maps out what Oregon needs to do to get to to the Final Four.

— New Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson has such a sweetheart contract.
