A source said that, if contacted, Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga will consider interviewing for the opening at George Mason, the program his dad Jim took to the 2006 Final Four.

But given Denver's history over underpaying coaches and front-office executives, the search may veer in the direction of the up-and-coming as opposed to established names. That would favor a candidate like Bryan Gates, or Boston assistant Jay Larranaga, coach of the Irish national team, league sources say. CBSSports.com

Walter McCarty’s education as a coach came from a very unpopular voice here in Boston. But without it, the former Celtics reserve forward might not be answering questions as a new assistant for Brad Stevens. McCarty — who was hired by Stevens to fill out the Celtics coaching staff with Ron Adams and Micah Shrewsberry, along with holdovers Jamie Young and Jay Larranaga — spent three seasons, starting in 2007, as an assistant coach at the University of Louisville under his former C’s coach Rick Pitino. It was there where he learned the intricacies of what a coach does behind the scenes, and how to find a voice as an assistant from a guy who has brought three different programs to the Final Four. “Working for Rick Pitino taught me a lot. It really prepared me for how to prepare for opponents, how to scout games, how to teach and develop players, and how to speak and communicate with players, as well,” McCarty said from the Celtics practice facilities before a private basketball clinic with MarShon Brooks for YMCA of Greater Boston youth yesterday.
