Southern Mississippi has offered the job to Donnie Tyndall.
Sources told CBSSports.com that Tyndall, who has led Morehead State to a pair of NCAA tournaments in the past four seasons, will make a decision within the next 24 hours. Tyndall met with the Southern Miss administration Monday in New Orleans. Former assistant Greg Heiar, now at Wichita State, Mississippi Valley State coach Sean Woods and former Nebraska coach Doc Sadler were also interviewed for the job.
Tyndall has spent the past six seasons at Morehead State following four seasons as an assistant at LSU.
He has a 114-84 record in his tenure and also recruited first-round pick Kenneth Faried to Morehead.
Tyndall would inherit a Southern Miss program that went to the NCAA tournament last season and finished 25-9. Larry Eustachy left for Colorado State earlier in the month.
