Former Maryland Star John Lucas Reportedly Interested In Head Coaching Job

After being spurned by pretty much every coach on their reported wish-list, the Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson has started to scrape the bottom of the barrel of coaching candidates. We've heard reports this morning about the University's interest in Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon, now a far more interesting, if unexpected, candidate has thrown his hat into the ring.

John Lucas, the former Maryland star and three-time NBA coach, has expressed interest in Terps job. Uncertain if he'll get interview.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

John Lucas is a Maryland great, let me just get that out of the way before I trash his candidacy for this job. He has been an NBA coach, while not a very successful one, and has no experience being a College head coach. I can't even say how much of a step down Lucas would be from some of the names that have been discussed. But to be fair, I don't think the Maryland side of this situation will actually consider him to be a candidate. This might just be Lucas trying to get his name into a conversation that won't have him. But at this point in this ludicrous search for a coach, I wouldn't be surprised by anything, frankly.
