2 UNIVERSITIES INTERESTED IN MCCARTHY

Two universities have received permission to talk with New Mexico State basketball coach Neil McCarthy and two others also have expressed an interest in wooing him, the El Paso Times reported Wednesday.

Quoting an unidentified source, the newspaper said Wichita State and Oregon have permission to talk to McCarthy. Also interested are Wisconsin and San Diego State, the newspaper reported."I can't confirm or deny that's happened," NMSU Athletic Director Al Gonzales said Tuesday. "Every year, I get requests to talk to Coach McCarthy and I say yes to all of them. In the past five years, I've gotten a lot of requests. That's part of the business of having a successful coach like Neil McCarthy."
