Kent State men's basketball coach Rob Senderoff's name has surfaced in connection with the job opening at Southern Mississippi.
In an article that appeared in Tuesday's edition of The Clarion Ledger, writer Jason Munz mentioned Senderoff and six others as potential candidates to replace Donnie Tyndall, who left Southern Mississippi on Tuesday after accepting the top job at Tennessee.
Stan Heath, who led the Golden Flashes to the NCAA Tournament's Elite 8 in 2001-02, but was fired by South Florida after winning just 12 games last season, was also mentioned as a potential candidate at Southern Miss.
Senderoff has compiled a 58-42 record in three seasons at Kent State.
Last year's KSU squad finished 16-16, after his first two teams both won 21 games and advanced to the MAC Tournament semifinals.
Senderoff signed a three-year contract worth $250,000 annually when he was hired by KSU in April of 2011, and two years have been added since he reached his 20-win incentive in each of his first two seasons.
