Mack interviews at Xavier

Posted on: April 8, 2009 6:44 pm

Xavier assistant Chris Mack interviewed for the school's vacant head coaching position Wednesday and appears to be the leading candidate to replace his old boss, a source has told

"I think it's his job to lose," the source said.

Miller accepted the Arizona job Monday and has subsequently endorsed Mack -- as have most of the players and recruits, plus the fan base (at least according to an online poll at the Cincinnati Enquirer ). Others who have been publicly connected to the job are Brad Stevens (Butler), Gary Waters (Cleveland State), Darrin Horn (South Carolina), Ken McDonald (Western Kentucky) and Fran McCaffery (Siena), though it's worth noting that McCaffery signed an eight-year contract with Siena on Wednesday and probably isn't a serious candidate.

Xavier should be a preseason Top 25 team next season.
