CARBONDALE — Texas Tech spoke to SIU men’s basketball coach Barry Hinson earlier this week about its vacant men’s basketball coach position.
The Red Raiders have also spoken with Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton, Indiana assistant coach Steve McClain and former Nebraska coach Kenneth “Doc” Sadler, who is at Kansas as the director of basketball operations, according to the Lubbock (Texas) Avalanche-Journal.

Hinson was the director of basketball operations at Kansas under longtime friend Bill Self before signing a five-year, $1.475 million contract with the Salukis last March.
Reached Tuesday, Hinson said Texas Tech asked SIU Athletic Director Mario Moccia for permission to speak with him, and was granted that right.
“I was not searching for, nor am I seeking a job. I am extremely happy at Southern Illinois, but I honored their request and sat down and visited with their administration,” Hinson said.
