Mancini Denies Interest in Lowell Coaching Job

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.
