Earlier reports had floated the possibility that Florida Golf Coast could pursue Buckeye men’s basketball assistant Dave Dickerson.
However, after filing a Freedom of Information Act request with the school, The News-Press reports it’s actually another OSU assistant linked to the job.
“Multiple pitches were made by others on behalf of Ohio State assistant coach Chris Jent.”
Jent’s name is included in a long list of possible candidates that also features former NBA player and current Southern Methodist assistant Eric Snow and former Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings coach Eric Musselman.
Jent has his own NBA ties, as he was once LeBron James shooting coach in Cleveland. CBS also mentioned Jent as a possible replacement for Mike Rice at Rutgers.
