It's not John Beilein's spot, but there is a vacancy in one of the basketball programs at West Virginia University.

Women's assistant coach E.J. Jackson has left the program after just two seasons, leaving a gap in the coaching ranks on the eve of a pair of important recruiting weekends. Jackson, who played football for Slippery Rock before beginning his career as a women's basketball coach, was involved in the recruiting process as well as in coaching West Virginia's post players.

Head coach Mike Carey interviewed a number of candidates for the vacant spot at the Final Four this weekend, and could name a replacement sometime this week.
