Jim Larranaga remains undecided about whether to remain at George Mason or accept an offer to be Miami's next coach, a source told CBSSports.com on Thursday. According to the source, there are no plans for Larranaga to inform his players of an imminent move to Miami despite a report out of New York suggesting otherwise that's headlined "George Mason coach leaving for Miami."
CBSSports.com first reported Thursday that Larranaga and Miami were in advanced discussions. In response to the report, George Mason officials acknowledged they had granted Miami permission to speak with Larranaga -- a 61-year-old New York native who has coached the Patriots the past 14 seasons. The highlight of his tenure is an improbable trip to the 2006 Final Four. He's also won four CAA regular-season titles.
Miami is searching for a replacement for Frank Haith.
Haith left earlier this month to replace Mike Anderson at Missouri.
