Gregg Marshall among those reportedly uninterested in Nebraska gig

0 Comments

Gregg Marshall has no interest in coaching Nebraska. Not that Cornhuskers athletic director Tom Osborne admits he even wants the Wichita State coach.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Marshall turned down Nebraska’s offer to replace Doc Sadler. One source told the paper Marshall had no interest in the job.

The school has interviewed Oral Roberts’ Scott Sutton and the paper reports that the school may have had direct contact with Colorado State’s Tim Miles and Wisconsin-Milwakee’s Rob Jeter, but Osborne says it hasn’t been directly offered to anyone. His statement:

“Our head men’s basketball position has not been offered to any individual at this point and will not be offered until we have fully completed the process. A job offer would not be extended without athletic department officials first having an opportunity to meet in person with that candidate.”

Other coaches who’ve been targeted in the school’s search, according to the paper, include Gonzaga’s Mark Few and Colorado’s Tad Boyle. UCLA’s Ben Howland reportedly had talks with Nebraska, but eventually backed away.
