Tennessee has added Richmond men's basketball coach Chris Mooney to the list of coaching candidates it's interested in, according to a source with knowledge of the coaching search.
The source requested anonymity because Richmond has not been contacted.
Mooney, 38, who played at Princeton, has been coach at Richmond since 2005, compiling a 112-86 record heading into Friday night’s NCAA tournament Sweet 16 game against Kansas.
Mooney signed a contract extension in 2010 that takes him through 2017 and could be worth as much as $700,000.
The Vols began their coaching search on Monday with the following five coaches on their list: Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon, Villanova coach Jay Wright, Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall, Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon and Alabama coach Anthony Grant, according to a source in the UT athletic department.
