Friday afternoon dirt…

  • It sounds like former St. Louis head coach Brad Soderberg is in the mix to replace Ritchie McKay on Tony Bennett’s staff at Virginia.  Soderberg was the head coach at St. Louis from 2002-2007 (80-74).  He is currently the head coach at Lindenwood (MO) where he has won 128 games in his six seasons.  He is a former assistant to Tony Bennett’s father Dick Bennett at Wisconsin, and also played for the elder Bennett at Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
  • The Louisville Courier Journal is reporting that Louisville assistant Wyking Jones will be departing to join Cuonzo Martin’s staff at Cal.  Jones has been with Pitino since 2011, and has also worked at Pepperdine and New Mexico.  Cal is looking to replace Jon Harris who became the head coach at SIUE earlier this spring.
