Menzies to interview with Pitino Tuesday

UNLV assistant coach Marvin Menzies will interview with University of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino Tuesday for the open spot on the Cardinals' staff created when Reggie Theus took over at New Mexico State.

UNLV assistant Marvin Menzies will travel to Louisville Tuesday to interview with U of L coach Rick Pitino about the open position on the Cardinals' coaching staff, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"I know he needs a West Coast guy," Menzies told the Review-Journal. "I'm intrigued about the process and interested enough to interview with Coach Pitino. It's a program that went to the Final Four."

Menzies is considered one of the top recruiters on the west coast. Before his current job at UNLV as an assistant to Lon Kruger, Menzies served as Steve Ficsher's top assistant at San Diego State University.

Kruger told the Review-Journal he's supportive of Menzies during this process.
