Mississippi State interviewed Valparaiso coach Bryce Drew Monday for its vacant coaching job, ESPN reported.
The school had expressed interest in Murray State coach Steve Prohm, but he’s staying put after signing an extension. The school also interviewed Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Rob Jeter.
Drew, 37, was 22-12 in his first season at Valparaiso, his first as a head coach after spending six seasons as an assistant under his father, Homer. The Crusaders won the Horizon League regular-season title, but lost in the conference tournament finals.
