According to multiple sources, Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury has become Clemson's latest target.
Stansbury, 50, has been the head coach of the Bulldogs for the past dozen seasons – and made six NCAA tournament appearances.
Stansbury has a 256-138 career mark – including a 24-12 record and an NIT appearance this past season.
Stansbury was an assistant for eight years under Richard Williams prior to taking over in 1998.
The Bulldogs will lose seniors Jarvis Varnardo and Barry Stewart off this year's team.
Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips and associate AD Bill D'Andrea have interviewed several candidates in the last few days: Brad Brownell (Wright State); Blaine Taylor (Old Dominion); Cliff Warren (Jacksonville); Mike Young (Wofford), former BC head coach Al Skinner and Clemson associate head coach Ron Bradley.
