A new name has entered the mix at Clemson: Mississippi State's Rick Stansbury.
Five coaches -- Wright State's Brad Brownell, Wofford's Mike Young, Jacksonville's Cliff Warren, Old Dominion's Blaine Taylor and former Boston College coach Al Skinner -- have already interviewed for the position, and Clemson assistant Ron Bradley is also considered a candidate. But Stansbury is the highest-profile name to be established as a legitimate candidate considering Oklahoma's Jeff Capel and Baylor's Scott Drew aren't seriously involved despite reports to the contrary, and Arizona State's Herb Sendek passed on an interview, sources told CBSSports.com.
Stansbury has made six NCAA tournaments in 12 seasons at Mississippi State.
Clemson is searching for a replacement for Oliver Purnell.
He left last Tuesday to take over at DePaul for more than $15 million.
