USF is trying to replace Stan Heath.
He was fired March 14 after six years at the school.
Musselman is a former head coach of the NBA's Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings who has also coached in the NBDL, where he won Coach of the Year honors in 2011-12. After that season, Musselman joined Herb Sendek's staff at Arizona State. He's recognized as a big reason why the Sun Devils won 21 games in each of the past two seasons.
Antigua has been with John Calipari since 2008.
He previously worked for Jamie Dixon at his alma mater, Pittsburgh.
South Florida reached an agreement last week with Manhattan's Steve Masiello, but that deal fell apart when an error on Masiello's resume surfaced during a background check. UNLV's Dave Rice and New Mexico's Craig Neal are among the other candidates mentioned for the job over the past week. Neither is believed to be involved anymore.
