KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Marquette may be targeting Tennessee's head basketball coach, according to an ESPN report Saturday.
Citing anonymous sources, ESPN reports that Marquette has Cuonzo Martin on their short list to fill their head coaching vacancy.
Along with Martin, former UCLA head coach Ben Howland is listed as a candidate. The report states it's unclear whether Martin would consider taking the Marquette job.
Martin is currently in the 3rd year of a five year contract and is making 1.3 million dollars this season, that puts him well into the bottom half of SEC head coaches.
A University of Tennessee spokesperson had no comment on the ESPN report.
