Report: Steve Lavin has interest in Arizona State head coaching job

Earlier this week, Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson made the decision to part ways with men’s head basketball coach Herb Sendek.

Friday, St. John’s came to a similar conclusion with their head coach, Steve Lavin, in what was described as a “mutual parting.”

So does that mean Lavin should be considered a candidate for the vacant job in Tempe?

Our own Paul Calvisi indicated as much on Twitter Friday afternoon.

Arizona Sports’ morning co-host has also tweeted on the matter.

Lavin, 50, spent the last five seasons at St. John’s, leading the Red Storm to a 92-72 record and two NCAA Tournament appearances in that span.

This season, St. John’s went 21-12 and was eliminated by San Diego State in the second round, 76-64.

Prior to his stint in New York, Lavin worked as a college basketball broadcaster. Before that, he was the head coach at UCLA from 1996 to 2003. The Bruins made five straight NCAA Tournament trips, including an advancement to the Elite 8 in the coach’s first season in L.A.
