The college notebook …
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. ó Western Kentucky coach Darrin Horn, who led the Hilltoppers on a nice run in the NCAA tournament, will interview for the job at South Carolina.
Horn told WKU athletic director Wood Selig that he has been approached by the Gamecocks about the coaching vacancy left by Dave Odom’s retirement.
The 35-year-old Horn guided the Hilltoppers (29-7) to the Sun Belt Conference title this season. Horn is 111-48 in five seasons at his alma mater.
South Carolina went 14-18 this season, including a 5-11 mark in the SEC.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. ó Bruce Pearl led Tennessee to its winningest season, a brief No. 1 ranking and a regular season SEC title in only his third year at the helm.
And with coaching vacancies cropping up around the country, Pearl almost certainly will draw some suitors.
FORT WORTH, Texas ó TCU hired Jim Christian away from Kent State on Saturday, hoping his penchant for 20-win seasons with the Golden Flashes translates to the moribund Horned Frogs.
Christian was 138-58 in six years at Kent State, winning at least 20 games each season.
