Add another name to the candidate list for the men's basketball coaching position for the Charlotte 49ers.
Former Wyoming and Clemson coach Larry Shyatt, currently associate head coach at Florida, has joined former Wake Forest and South Carolina coach Dave Odom as a candidate for the 49ers' vacancy, according to a source close to the process.
Shyatt, 58, has worked previously for UNC Charlotte chancellor Dr. Philip Dubois. Shyatt spent one season as coach at Wyoming, going 19-9 and making an NCAA appearance in the 1997-98 season while Dubois was the school's president.
Clemson hired Shyatt after his success at Wyoming. He spent five seasons with the Tigers and compiled a 70-84 record. He moved to the Florida Gators as an assistant in 2004 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2007.
Shyatt's defensive philosophy has been credited in part for the Gators' run to the NCAA championship. His impact on the team was highlighted in this New York Times article.
UPDATE: Odom has also interviewed for the coaching vacancy at UNC Wilmington according to this article at the Wilmington Star News.
