Mark Hollis spoke to The Associated Press on Monday after The News-Herald of Willoughby, Ohio, reported the Cavs have made Izzo an offer to replace fired coach Mike Brown. The story cited an unidentified league source.
The Cavs would not comment. A message was left with Izzo.
Izzo is regularly mentioned as a candidate for NBA and other college jobs since Michigan State won a national championship in 2000. He led the Spartans to the Final Four this year for the sixth time in 12 seasons.
