Howland interested in the Rutgers job

Former UCLA coach Ben Howland might be back on the sidelines real soon. Howland has indicated that he would be interested in the Rutgers job according to a report by CBS Sports' Gary Parrish.

While it would make sense for Rutgers to take an immediate upgrade, it might be a while since they'll be hunting for a new athletic director as well, since former AD Tim Pernetti resigned after coach Mike Rice was fired after a videotape aired of Rice cursing players out and throwing basketballs at their heads.

Howland has been known to recruit New York City well so he could be a favorite of university boosters. If I was the president I would've made this hire yesterday.
