ASU AD expects assistant Musselman to draw interest from other schools

The Arizona State Sun Devils won 21 games this season, which is more than double the number of games they were victorious in just one year ago.

Much of the credit has been given to freshman Jahii Carson, and rightfully so.

However, one would be remiss not to recognize the contributions made by some of head coach Herb Sendek’s new assistants, and specifically those of Eric Musselman.

Musselman brought NBA experience to the college ranks, and his impact could lead to him getting looks from other schools about their own vacancies.

“I think Eric’s going to have opportunities to look at head coaching jobs,” ASU athletic director Steve Patterson told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday. “He’s a very qualified coach. He did a great job, I think, teaching and working here. You know, we’d love to have him back.

“On the other hand, if somebody comes after him and offers him a head coaching job, I think he certainly would have to look at that.”
