Davidson's Matheny a coaching target?

Matt Metheny, Davidson's associate head coach, has had his name pop up in the middle of several on-going coaching searches, the by-product of the Wildcats' recent and continued success.

The latest mention has been Appalachian State, but a source close to the proceedings said that the Mountaineers are likely to go in a different direction. But that hardly means that Matheny is unwanted--Elon, the source said, has shown considerable interest in Matheny recently.

Matheny is 39 now, and a Davidson grad who has been working with head coach Bob McKillop for 16 seasons. He's ready to take the next step, but is probably considering whether Elon, a school with a limited profile and resources, is right for him.

In any event, expect him to get a team of his own somewhere, and sometime soon.--Stan Olson

This guy can do better than Elon.
