Greenberg Removes Name From Consideration

Seth Greenberg will not be the next head coach at Oregon State. He will remain at South Florida.

Greenberg visited Corvallis over the weekend and was said to be one of the top four candidates for the position. Greenberg has worked in his six seasons at South Florida to bring the program back to respectability. The win total of 19 this past season was the third highest total in school history, and the highest since 1991-92.

The deletion of Greenberg as a candidate brings Mitch Barnhart's list down to three possible candidates, Bobby Braswell, Bob Thomason, and Jay John. Barnhart has refused comment during the search for a replacement for Ritchie McKay and will not reveal who his top candidate is, although it is believed he is battling over whether to offer the position to an experienced assistant, Jay, or a more experienced head coach, Braswell or Thomason.

Greenberg had this to say about his visit, "After spending Sunday in Corvallis and meeting Oregon State University officials, I have decided to stay on as the head basketball coach at USF. My wife, Karen, and I left Corvallis very impressed with the University and with the Athletic Department. I feel that Oregon State has the potential to reclaim its outstanding basketball tradition."
