A person familiar with the situation says Duke assistant Chris Collins has interviewed for the head coach opening at Northwestern.
The person told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Collins spoke with Northwestern about the job on Monday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Northwestern is not publicly discussing the hiring process.
Collins is a native of the Chicago suburb of Northbrook, Ill. - roughly 15 miles from the Northwestern campus in Evanston - and is the son of Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins.
The former Duke guard and Mr. Basketball in Illinois has been on Mike Krzyzewski's staff since 2000. He was promoted to associate head coach in 2008.
Northwestern is searching for a replacement for Bill Carmody, who was fired earlier this month after 13 seasons.
