Stirckland offered at Florida A&M

Florida A&M has offered its vacant head coaching position to current USF assistant coach and former NBA player Rod Strickland, according to reports.

FAMU had been searching for a head coach since the school dismissed Byron Samuels on March 17 after three seasons.

A WCTV (Tallahassee, Florida) report indicated that Strickland had been offered the position after the university interviewed Southern associate head coach Mo Scott and former FAMU basketball player and James Madison assistant Byron Taylor.

Strickland has been an assistant at USF since 2014. Before his coaching stint at South Florida, he was an assistant under John Calipari at Kentucky and Memphis being credited in recruiting the likes of NBA stars Derrick Rose, Anthony Davis and John Wall.
