Canes Reportedly Looking at Larranaga

Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reported that the University of Miami, under new leadership of Shawn Eichorst, is in discussions with Jim Larranaga, the head coach of George Mason’s basketball team.

Larranaga in 2006

He has been at the helm of George Mason for fourteen seasons, making the final four in 2006 and advancing to the second round in March’s NCAA Tournament.

Larranaga does not exactly bring youth to the program–he is 61–but he has done more in the postseason at George Mason than anyone has ever been able to do at Miami.

Larranaga would likely come with a cheap price tag.  He makes $525,000 a year at George Mason, and could expect a higher starting salary at Miami.
