The Oklahoman has mentioned Herb Sendek as a potential candidate for the OU Job. You have to register to read the story.
List of potential candidates to replace Oklahoma coach Kelvin Sampson:
Tubby Smith (Kentucky): Yes, it’s a step down professionally. But Tubby said he enjoyed coaching at Tulsa and has always spoken fondly of Okies.
Mark Few (Gonzaga): Firmly entrenched up in Spokane, but with Adam Morrison headed to the NBA, perhaps Few is ready to take make a move.
Tom Crean (Marquette): As one of Sampson’s closest friends, he already knows plenty about the inner workings at OU, which would help with the transition.
Lorenzo Romar (Washington): Could the Sooners steal another hoops coach from the state of Washington? UW assistant Jim Shaw worked for Sampson.
Herb Sendek (North Carolina State): Some folks on Tobacco Road speculate Sendek – who has a sterling reputation with the NCAA – is part of OU’s coaching search.
