Report: Hipsher gets FAU interview today

USF assistant coach Dan Hipsher will interview Friday in Boca Raton for the head coaching vacancy at Florida Atlantic, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Hipsher, who got a public endorsement for the job from coaching legend Bob Knight, is expected to be one of the final interviews for the job, along with former St. John's coach Mike Jarvis, the Post reported. Hipsher, formerly the head coach at Stetson and Akron, is the only carryover from Stan Heath's Arkansas staff to follow him last season to USF.

By coincidence, another of the finalists interviewed is former Saint Louis coach Brad Soderberg, who was hired to coach the Billikens by then-athletic director Doug Woolard, now at USF. The Post reports that FAU could have a decision made on its next coach this weekend or early next week at the latest.
