Heath has 'a good meeting' with Woolard about USF job
The former Arkansas coach does not rule out talks about other schools' openings.

USF's search for its next basketball coach continues at the Final Four in Atlanta, where former Arkansas coach Stan Heath met Thursday with Bulls athletic director Doug Woolard.
"We had a good meeting," said Heath, fired Monday by Arkansas despite a 20-win season and making the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row. "We'll visit some more and have more dialogue in the next few days."
If the Bulls are serious about offering Heath the job, the next step likely would be bringing him to Tampa to tour the campus and facilities and meet with school administrators. Asked if such plans had been made, Heath said "not at the moment."
Heath, who said Thursday that he was "possibly" meeting with other schools in Atlanta, said he would have a better feel for his plans after "things clear up on my end." He has not been publicly linked to any other openings.
Three of the four known candidates who have talked with Woolard - Winthrop coach Gregg Marshall, South Alabama coach John Pelphrey and former St. John's coach Fran Fraschilla - have taken their names out of consideration since Sunday.
The Bulls seek a replacement for Robert McCullum, who was fired March 9 after four seasons, including a 4-28 record in two seasons of Big East play. Woolard is not commenting on candidates during the hiring process.
