COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -Former Clemson and Auburn coach Cliff Ellis and former Alabama coach David Hobbs are among five finalists for the head coaching position at Coastal Carolina.
Buzz Peterson left the Chanticleers earlier this month after two seasons as head coach to become director of player personnel for the Charlotte Bobcats.
The other finalists are current Coastal Carolina assistant Jamie Kachmarik, South Carolina-Upstate coach Eddie Payne and Florida assistant Lewis Preston, athletic director Warren Koegel said Wednesday. He said the five candidates will be brought on campus for interviews next week.
Ellis has 534 wins in 30 years of coaching college basketball. His last coaching job ended in 2004 at Auburn, where he went 186-125. Ellis spent 10 years at Clemson, leaving in 1994 as the Tigers' winningest coach with a record of 177-128. He has eight NCAA tournament appearances.
Hobbs coached Alabama from 1992 to 1998, going 110-76 with two NCAA tournament bids. He has spent the past seven years as an assistant at Kentucky.
