Add UMBC’s Ryan Odom to the list of coaches who have spurned St. John’s.
Odom joins a growing list that includes Arizona State’s Bobby Hurley and Loyola Chicago’s Porter Moser.
St. John’s asked for permission to speak with Odom, sources said, but UMBC AD Tim Hall Tweeted Wednesday that Odom would be staying at his current school.
“Just spoke with
@Coachryanodom and I can absolutely dispel any rumors about him being involved in the St. John’s head coach search,” Hall Tweeted. “He is looking forward to seeing you all @UMBCEventCenter for the 2019-20 @UMBC_MBB season. @UMBCAthletics.”
Sources said UMBC had already been talking with Odom about another extension following the one he got last year.
