 LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -Former LSU basketball coach John Brady has emerged as a strong candidate for the Arkansas State job.
Brady was fired by LSU on Feb. 8, less than two seasons after leading the Tigers to the Final Four. He has been in talks with Arkansas State, which has had an opening since Dickey Nutt resigned Feb. 19.
Arkansas State scheduled a news conference for 11 a.m. Wednesday at its Jonesboro campus to announce a new coach. Board of Trustees Chairman Mike Gibson said around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday that he couldn't confirm that Brady would be introduced.
``We've been talking to John Brady,'' Gibson said. ``As of a few minutes ago, no contract had been signed.''
Arkansas State's athletic department had no comment on the coaching search, spokesman Jerry Scott said. School president Les Wyatt and Chancellor Robert Potts did not return calls seeking comment. Brady also did not return a call seeking comment.
After Nutt resigned, former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson expressed interest in the job. Richardson, who has been out of college coaching since being fired by the Razorbacks in 2002, spoke with Arkansas State officials and went to the Jonesboro area for a visit. Last week, Richardson said he was no longer a candidate for the job.
Brady led LSU to the Final Four in 2006, but the team fell to 17-15 the following season. He was fired after the Tigers started 8-13 this season.
The 53-year-old Brady went 192-139 in 11 seasons with the Tigers. Before moving to LSU, he went 89-77 in six years at Samford.
Nutt stepped down after going 189-187 at Arkansas State. He was in his 13th season. Arkansas State went 10-20 this season and hasn't made the NCAA tournament since 1999.
