Former Charlotte head coach and current North Carolina State assistant coach Bobby Lutz interviewed for the head coaching position at the College of Charleston this weekend, The Post and Courier has learned.
Also, former College of Charleston guard Anthony Johnson will be interviewed for the position this week, most likely as soon as Tuesday, the source confirmed.
The College of Charleston fired head coach Doug Wojcik on Aug. 5 for "just cause" after two independent investigations uncovered allegations of verbal and physical abuse of players and athletic department staff members.
Lutz, 56, compiled a 218-157 mark at Charlotte from 1998-2010. Lutz led the 49ers to five NCAA tournament appearances and three NIT spots during his tenure at Charlotte. Lutz had five 20-win seasons during his 12 seasons at Charlotte.
Before becoming the head coach at Charlotte, Lutz was 180-89 in nine seasons as head coach at Division II Pfeiffer.
In 21 seasons as a head coach, Lutz is 398-247.
Lutz was fired after guiding the 49ers to a 19-12 mark during the 2009-10 season. He spent a season as an assistant coach at Iowa State before joining the Wolfpack staff in 2011.
Meanwhile, Johnson is still considered the leading candidate for the vacancy.
Johnson, who interviewed for the position in 2012 before Wojcik was hired, was contacted by athletic director Joe Hull and members of the school's eight-person search committed. Hull is serving as the chairman of the search committee.
Clemson assistant coach Earl Grant, who like Johnson played at Stall High School, was contacted by the search committee, but an interview has not been scheduled as of yet, the source confirmed.
