Florida A&M hasn’t yet named a men’s basketball coach, but there certainly isn’t a lack of applicants.
FAMU on Wednesday closed the application for the job after it was reopened on Monday. The job’s original posting date was March 21, four days after it was announced then-head coach Byron Samuels’ contract would not be renewed.
A list of names obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat reveals 122 candidates applied to be FAMU’s next head coach. Their experience levels range from assistant coach at the JUCO level to NBA champions.
