Memphis failed in its attempt to hire Baylor's Scott Drew.
Now the new Memphis coach is trying to hire one of Drew's assistants.
A source told CBSSports.com that Josh Pastner interviewed Jerome Tang on the Memphis campus Wednesday and offered the Baylor assistant a job. According to the source, Tang flew back to Waco, Texas, on Wednesday night and is mulling the offer. A decision is expected soon considering the April recruiting period begins Thursday at noon.
Tang just finished his sixth season at Baylor.
