Manhattan's Rohrssen Might Move On

Siena and Iona might not be the only MAAC men's basketball programs looking for a new coach in coming weeks.

The St. John's opening might well rob another conference team of its head coach.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Barry Rohrssen of Manhattan could wind up as a St. John's assistant if Steve Lavin, the former UCLA coach, takes over the Johnnies.

Here's the mention, from The Globe, which is following the St. John's process closely because Boston College coach Al Skinner is a candidate:

"So yesterday, sources familiar with the situation said St. John’s was preparing a deal with Lavin that would include him hiring among his assistants Dave Leitao, who has had head coaching stops at Northeastern, DePaul, and Virginia, and Manhattan head coach Barry Rohrssen, who has strong recruiting ties in the city."
