SALT LAKE CITY – Gonzaga assistant coach Tommy Lloyd was listed by a couple of media outlets as a potential candidate for the vacancy at Washington.

The Huskies fired Lorenzo Romar on Wednesday.

Lloyd has a coach-in-waiting agreement to replace head coach Mark Few if Few were to leave Gonzaga.

ESPN.com listed Washington’s three “realistic” candidates as Boise State head coach and former Gonzaga assistant coach Leon Rice, Mississippi State’s Ben Howland and Georgia’s Mark Fox. Lloyd, Nevada’s Eric Musselman and South Dakota State’s T.J. Otzelberg were listed in the “backups” category.

ESPN.com mentions Few as someone the Huskies should “take a chance at” but called it “very unlikely.”

The Tacoma News Tribune’s list of seven candidates included Lloyd, Rice, Otzelberger and Randy Bennett of Saint Mary’s.

Gonzaga and South Dakota State meet in the NCAA tournament first round Thursday.
