Mooney interviewing with Georgia Tech

Richmond's Chris Mooney is interviewing at Georgia Tech on Sunday, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Mooney completed his sixth season at Richmond with a Friday loss to Kansas in the Sweet 16.

He appears to be the primary candidate to replace Paul Hewitt at Georgia Tech.

Mooney is 112-87 in six seasons at Richmond. The Princeton graduate has made the NCAA tournament each of the past two years. He's won at least 20 games each of the past three seasons thanks to a 29-8 record this season.

Report: BC fires Skinner

Boston College has scheduled an afternoon press conference to announce it has fired basketball coach Al  Skinner, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday morning on its web site.

Skinner spent 13 seasons at Boston College.

He made seven NCAA tournament appearances.

This development comes less than a week after Skinner interviewed for the vacancy at St. John's. BC officials have already asked for permission to speak with Richmond's Chris Mooney and Cornell's Steve Donahue, according to the Boston Globe. Harvard's Tommy Amaker and Northeastern's Billy Coen are other possibilities.

Dear Gary (on the A-10's start)

Here's Wednesday's Dear Gary ...

Dear Gary: Is it me or is the Atlantic 10 doing surprisingly well as a conference so far?

-- Neil

I think it's just you, Neil.

Hard to say a conference is doing well when the team picked first, Dayton, already has two losses, including one on a neutral court to the team picked fourth in the Big 12 (Kansas State). The team picked second in the A-10, Xavier, remains undefeated, but the Musketeers haven't played anybody. The team picked third in the A-10, Richmond, has a loss to William & Mary. And the team picked fourth in the A-10, La Salle, lost by double-digits on a neutral court to South Carolina. So the top four in the A-10 aren't off to great starts, although it's only fair to note that Temple -- with a one-point loss to Georgetown and victory over Siena -- appears to be better than anticipated.

Either way, as a league, the A-10 isn't doing surprisingly well.

I still believe in Dayton, I like Xavier, and I'm willing to give Temple the benefit of the doubt because the Owls have looked good. But when three of the supposed top four in a league already have losses (and the fourth hasn't beaten anybody), it's difficult to get too excited. So let's give it a few more weeks, take a closer look and reexamine it then.
