DETROIT -- Southern California's Tim Floyd is considering an offer to become Arizona's next basketball coach, sources close to the situation have told CBSSports.com.
A formal announcement could come as early as Thursday, one source said. But both sources added that any reports of Floyd already accepting the job are "premature."
Multiple sources told CBSSports.com that Arizona athletic director Jim Livengood settled on Floyd after being rebuffed to varying degrees by several coaches -- among them Mark Few (Gonzaga), Rick Pitino (Louisville), Tom Izzo (Michigan State), John Calipari (Kentucky), Jamie Dixon (Pittsburgh) and Bruce Pearl (Tennessee).
Floyd has been at USC four seasons.
He's made three NCAA tournaments.
