Reports: Dawkins Interviews for Stanford Post

Multiple media outlets have reported that associate men’s basketball head coach Johnny Dawkins interviewed for the open head coaching position at Stanford Friday.

Dawkins graduated as the leading scorer in Duke history in 1986. He is now the second-leading scorer in Duke’s record books, as he was surpassed by J.J. Redick in 2006. He spent nine seasons in the NBA before returning to Duke as an administrative assistant in 1996. He became an assistant coach in 1998 and the associate head coach in 1999. His No. 24 was retired, and he is a member of the Duke Sports Hall of Fame.

Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury-News offers a compelling case against Dawkins, citing his lack of experience as a head coach and the differences between Duke and Stanford despite their first-rate academic reputations.

We’ll work on getting it confirmed through our end. Check back for more updates.
