At least two national media outlets are reporting that Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni has been contacted by Marshall about the open head coaching position.
ESPN.Com reported that Marshall has "reached out" to D'Antoni and CBSsports.com quotes a source that there's "mutual interest" between D'Antoni and Marshall.
The former Marshall All American is under contract with Los Angeles and there are still 12 games left in the Lakers' regular season, which ends April 16th.
D'Antoni is a former NBA Coach of the Year with Phoenix.
Marshall Athletics Director Mike Hamrick has said he will not comment on the coaching situation during the search.
