Ohio's Groce mum on coaching openings for now
ST. LOUIS (AP) Ohio's John Groce isn't saying whether he's interested in filling any of the high-profile coaching vacancies out there.
Groce's name has been connected to the Nebraska and Illinois openings.
Groce said Thursday he would withhold comment on his future until after the Bobcats' season. Ohio plays North Carolina in the Midwest Regional semifinals in St. Louis on Friday.
Groce says it's flattering to be mentioned for Big Ten jobs because it means he's doing something right.
The Bobcats (29-7) are in the round of 16 for the first time since 1964.
Oregon coach Dana Altman, who grew up in Nebraska and coached at Creighton in Omaha, said through a spokesman that he wouldn't discuss the Huskers' job and that he was recruiting for the Ducks this week.
