Hinson Interviews at Texas Tech
WSIL -- SIU head men's basketball coach Barry Hinson has only been in Carbondale for a year, but he's already interviewed for another position, according to multiple sources.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported Tuesday that Hinson is one of at least five candidates for the head coaching job at Texas Tech. Other coaches who have interviewed include former Nebraska coach Doc Sadler, Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton and Indiana assistant Steve McClain, as well as current interim coach Chris Walker.
Walker took over for Billy Gillispie, who resigned three weeks before the season started, citing health concerns.
Hinson told News 3 Tuesday afternoon he "prefers not to comment at this time."
