With Steve Lappas apparently on the way out the door at UMass, speculation has begun about possible successors. On the short list, according to the Middletown (Ct.):
University of Connecticut assistant men's basketball coach Tom Moore will be one of the favorites to take over at Massachusetts, a job that is expected to be vacant today.
. . .
Others early candidates for the UMass job will include Manhattan head coach Bobby Gonzalez, Memphis assistant and UMass alum Tony Barbee, Holy Cross head coach Ralph Willard and Boston University coach Dennis Wolff, a UConn alum.
