D'Antoni Rules Out Head Coaching Vacancy At Marshall

Apr 23, 2014 12:23 PM

Mike D'Antoni is not expected to take the vacant coaching job with Marshall, sources told CBSSports.com.

One source was under the impression that D'Antoni would take the job if he was fired by the Los Angeles Lakers.

CBSSports.com reported in March that there was mutual interest between the two sides.

The Lakers are waiting to make a final decision on whether to keep D'Antoni for the 14-15 season, the final season of his contract.

Mike D'Antoni Receives Inquiry From Marshall

Mar 27, 2014 11:30 PM

Mike D'Antoni has received interest from Marshall on their head coaching vacancy.

Sources said that the Thundering Herd have pursued D'Antoni before and made this latest inquiry because they "always sound him out" any time the position becomes available.

Sources say D'Antoni is highly unlikely to end up at Marshall even if he's not retained by the Los Angeles Lakers.

D'Antoni played for the Thundering Herd from 1970 to '73.

D'Antoni has two seasons remaining on his contract with the Lakers.
