PORTLAND, Ore. — Jazz assistant coach Tyrone Corbin said Wednesday that his "name's in" for the nationwide head coaching search at his Chicago alma mater, DePaul University.
But Corbin hasn't interviewed with DePaul about the position, which since the Jan. 11 firing of Jerry Wainwright has been filled on an interim basis by Blue Demons assistant coach Tracy Webster.
Corbin said he has "talked with some people from the school — but not the school itself." And he probably won't talk officially with DePaul officials, he added, until after this season. "We'll evaluate it whenever we get to talking about it," he said.
"I'll look at it," added Corbin, who has no head coaching experience. "I mean, I went there. I'm connected. But we'll see. It's kind of early."
The longtime NBA player, who spent three seasons as a player for the Jazz, has interviewed unsuccessfully for at least three NBA head coaching jobs — Seattle (now Oklahoma City) in 2008, and Phoenix and Chicago last offseason.
