Former Niners assistant interviews at G-W

Former Charlotte 49ers associate head coach Rob Moxley interviewed Monday and Tuesday for the head men's basketball coaching vacancy at Gardner-Webb, a source close to the hiring process said.

Moxley is one of five candidates that have been interviewed for the position and is considered one of the leaders for the job, the source said.

Moxley was named associate head coach of the 49ers on May 1, 2006 and just completed his fourth season in that role and 12th year overall at Charlotte. He served as assistant coach for seven years (1999-2005) before accepting an assistant coaching position at Maryland in 2005-06. He returned to Charlotte after one season to take over as associate head coach.

Gardner-Webb fired coach Rick Scruggs on March 6. Moxley lost his position at Charlotte when 12-year coach Bobby Lutz and his staff were fired on March 15.

Mox would definitely get talent to Gardner-Webb. He knows the program and was a key cog there when Lutz was head coach for 3 months before he left to join Mullins' staff.

Bobby could be competing with Mox for the job!
But that is of course if Lutz didn't enjoy the fact that he is screwing UNCC by sitting on his arse and accepting his buyout for the next 5 years!
