As promised, here’s a more lengthy list of possible candidates for Western Kentucky’s vacant women’s basketball coaching position.
This list is hardly a science – it doesn’t necessarily mean WKU is considering a certain person, or that they’re not looking at someone outside the list.
These are simply obvious options for the Lady Toppers or people that I’ve had brought to my attention. I’ve heard that WKU has contacted/interviewed some names on this list already, but that’s just word of mouth and nothing concrete.
If I was providing a list of people I think are realistic candidates, I would trim this list down some. But I mainly wanted to give people a look at what all is out there.
I do expect WKU to move fairly fast on this job, especially since the Lady Tops have scholarships to fill with the signing period approaching.
