Doherty Update - Not In Yet At St. John's

St. John's appears to have hit a bit of a roadblock in their
quest for a new coach. Matt
Doherty is the favorite of James Riley
, who is a key booster, having given
most of the money to build St. John's new gym. Riley is a member of the
board of trustees, and obviously they have to listen to him.

<!font size="7"> But according to some other sources, the Johnnies are
not sure they want to deal with Doherty, who does come with some baggage from
his stints at UNC and Notre Dame, depending on who you listen to there.

<!font size="7">They are also looking at Kansas assistant Norm Roberts and
DePaul's Dave Leitao. Tim Welsh is also getting some attention, and Bobby
Cremins also gets some interest as well.
