The Colorado St. Rams appear to narrowing the field of potential head basketball coaches. According to Sean Star of the Loveland Reporter-Herald, former Oregon Ducks head coach Ernie Kent is among the few top candidates for the CSU job:

The Rams have been looking for the school's 19th head coach after coach Tim Miles accepted the head coach position with the Nebraska Cornhuskers following the 2011-12 season. Miles led the team to a 20-12 record and an appearance in the NCAA College Basketball Tournament.
Kent coached 408 games for the Ducks and led them to a 235-173 record, good for a .576 winning percentage. The 57-year-old did not coach in 2011 or 2012.
