Marquette has contacted former UCLA coach Ben Howland about replacing Buzz Williams, but no offer has been made, ESPN.com reported Sunday.
Howland reportedly is “extremely interested” in the job.
Howland, 56, took the Bruins to three consecutive Final Four appearances from 2006 to 2008 before being fired after the 2012-13 season. He compiled an overall mark of 233-107 in a decade with the Bruins. Howland sat out this past season.
Howland coached Pittsburgh for four seasons before leaving for UCLA and took the Panthers to the Sweet 16 in each of his final two seasons.
Williams left Marquette after six seasons to take the Virginia Tech job last week.
According to ESPN.com, Syracuse coach-in-waiting Mike Hopkins and former Marquette player and assistant Brian Wardle, who is currently the head coach at Green Bay, are also in the mix of possible candidates, along with Dayton’s Archie Miller.
