TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- After two months of searching, Florida A&M’s athletic department is closing in on its new men’s head basketball coach.
Athletic Director Milton Overton Jr. said on Monday the school is down to its final three in the search.
Robert McCullum, Pat Kennedy and Lindsey Hunter are the three finalists, he said. No “official or unofficial offer” has been made to any of the three. Overton said all three are undergoing background checks and he hopes to make a decision by the end of the week.
All three coaches come with strong backgrounds.
