KU assistant Joe Dooley contacted about East Carolina job

On Monday, reported that Kansas assistant coach Joe Dooley had been offered the head coaching job at East Carolina, where Dooley was the head coach from 1996-99, going 57-52.

But KU coach Bill Self said that negotiations between Dooley and East Carolina were not that far along.

“Nothing has been offered,” Self said. “Nothing is imminent at all. (They are) still gauging interest.”

Dooley has been on the KU staff for all seven seasons of Self’s tenure.
