Staley to Interview with Ohio State


By Sports Department

(WOLO) -- South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner has given Ohio State permission to talk to USC women's basketball coach Dawn Staley.

Staley plans to interview with the Big 10 school early next week about their vacant coaching position.

She just completed her fifth season at South Carolina.

Staley has a 92-66 record at USC, including 38-40 in the Southeastern Conference.

This year she led the Gamecocks to the second round of the NCAA women's tournament.

Last year, the team made the Sweet Sixteen.

Tanner said he will do everything possible to keep Staley in Columbia.

Ohio State fired their coach, Jim Foster, 10 days ago after the team failed to make the tournament.
