LOS ANGELES – It’s become an annual rite of the NCAA Tournament: Gonzaga assistant coach Tommy Lloyd’s name attached to a job opening.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported earlier this week that Lloyd is one of five being pursued for Utah State’s coaching job by Aggies athletic director John Hartwell.
Lloyd was mentioned at Washington a year ago during Gonzaga’s march to the national title game. His name has surfaced during several head coaching searches in recent years.
Lloyd is considered Gonzaga’s coach-in-waiting if Mark Few were to retire or accept another position.
“I’m 100 percent focused on Gonzaga,” he said. “In this day and age with twitter and blogging, people are making a wild guess so names get attached to things. A lot of times there’s never been any contact.”
