Miami talking with George Mason's Larranaga about job


George Mason's Jim Larranaga has had serious discussions with Miami officials about the ACC school's coaching vacancy, multiple sources told CBSSports.com on Thursday.

Whether Larranaga is leveraging for a better deal from George Mason or on the verge of moving to Miami is unclear, both sources said. But discussions are ongoing and the 61-year-old New York native is Miami's top target.

Miami is searching for a replacement for Frank Haith.

Haith left earlier this month to replace Mike Anderson at Missouri.

Larranaga has spent 14 seasons at George Mason and famously led the school to the 2006 Final Four.

Gary Parrish is a senior college basketball columnist for CBSSports.com and frequent contributor to the CBS Sports Network. The Mississippi native also hosts the highest-rated sports talk radio show -- The Gary Parrish Show -- in the history of Memphis. He lives in that area with his wife, two children and a dog.
