Head Coaching Search Update. Well, things appear to be happening. Via Albuquerque Journal’s Ken Sickenger, New Mexico head coach Mike Bradbury denied that he was a candidate for the Lady Raider coaching job. Bradbury said that he had a conversation with Texas Tech for about ten minutes after New Mexico’s season ended. This article also had this paragraph:

The social media storm later blew toward Minnesota coach Marelene Stollings, whom @wbballhoopscoop declared the Texas Tech frontrunner some 90 minutes after it said the school was “leaning to Bradbury.” UTEP coach Kevin Baker and Western Illinois’ J.D. Gravina also were caught in the rumor mill.

If you go to @wbballhoopscoop, which has about 11,000 followers, this is what they said last night:

Texas Tech: announcement tomorrow!? JD Gravina and Mike Bradbury along with Marlene Stollings. Hearing they are leaning to Bradbury. Stay tuned.

Texas Tech: look for announcement soon. Look for Minnesota to open up shortly. Hearing some wanted Bradbury, some wanted Stollings. Looks like Stollings wins out.

And, in fact via the StarTribune, Minnesota head coach Marlene Stollings interviewed for the Texas Tech position:

Gophers women’s basketball coach Marlene Stollings interviewed for the same position at Texas Tech on Thursday, a university official confirmed to the Star Tribune.

Stollings, whose team finished 24-9 and lost to Oregon in the second round of the NCAA tournament this season, has an 82-47 record in four seasons at Minnesota.
