Hall of Famer Chris Mullin currently holds a front office gig with the Sacramento Kings and reportedly was considered for the head coaching spot when that position became available part-way through the season.
But as it turns out, he may be taking another job, some 3,000 miles away. Mullin was offered and is reportedly set to accept the head coaching job at his alma mater, St. John’s University.
St. John’s has offered Chris Mullin the opportunity to be its next head basketball coach and he is expected to accept, multiple sources say.
The two sides were hammering out final details on a contract Sunday that would make Mullin the successor to Steve Lavin, who was fired Friday after five years at the school.
Barring a last-minute snag in the negotiations, the administration is hoping to have a press conference Tuesday or Wednesday.
