UC Santa Barbara coach Lindsay Gottlieb is interviewing for the Cal head coaching job today, according to a report in the Santa Barbara News-Press.
Gottlieb was an assistant at Cal under departed coach Joanne Boyle for three seasons before taking the job with the Gauchos. Gottlieb is 56-39 in three years at UCSB.
The report also said the Bears are considering two highly successful mid-major coaches — Bowling Green’s Curt Miller and Fresno State’s Adrian Wiggins. A source said Wiggins has not been contacted by Cal about the job. Miller reportedly had a second interview yesterday for the vacancy at New Mexico.
Gottlieb was the Big West Coach of the Year in 2008-09.
