Even if Al Skinner doesn't get the St. John's gig, he may be out of a job.
Boston College's coach interviewed with the Johnnies last week, but the Boston Globe reported Monday night that the school may ditch Skinner even if he doesn't get hired.
At least three coaches – Billy Donovan, Paul Hewitt and Seth Greenberg – already passed on St. John's. Skinner was slated as the fourth choice, and a decent one at that. But then ex-UCLA coach and current ESPN analyst Steve Lavin threw his name into the mix.
The result is St. John's may come out with the big-name coach it wanted, while Skinner's looking for another job.
Didn't see that one coming last week.
This doesn't even include Cornell coach Steve Donahue, who would be a worthy candidate, and ex-Siena coach Fran McCaffery, who was hired at Iowa.
