Reggie Theus Rumors

According to a person familiar with his thinking, the former University of New Mexico coach and Los Angeles native is looking to return to the college ranks either at the University of the Pacific or Southern California. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of coaching searches. The Tigers’ program in Stockton, Calif. is a diamond in the rough if ever there was one, and longtime coach Bob Thomason – who took the West Coast Conference team to four NCAA Tournament appearances and six conference championships when UOP was in the Big West – will be retiring after this season. The Trojans job opened up on Monday when Kevin O’Neill was fired after he’d gone 48-65 in three-plus seasons.
