ALBANY, N.Y. — Bob Mancini, recently mentioned as a candidate for the UMass-Lowell coaching position vacated by Tim Whitehead, denied interest in the job Thursday.
“I was asked to call the [athletic director] … and I did,” said Mancini. “We talked about it. He asked me if I was interested to send a resume. I didn’t.
“I’m not interested, and I’ve never been a candidate.”
Mancini, currently a scout with the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, coached at Michigan Tech and with the U.S. Developmental Program.
