CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers are working their way down the Los Angeles Clippers bench to maybe find their next coach. The team will interview Clippers assistants Tyronn Lue and Alvin Gentry over the next two days for their coaching job, a person with knowledge of the meetings told The Associated Press. Lue, who has spent the past four seasons working under Doc Rivers in Boston and Los Angeles, is meeting with the Cavs on Thursday and Gentry is scheduled to sit down with the Cavs on Friday. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting during its search. The Cavaliers are looking for their third coach in three years after firing Mike Brown -- for the second time -- this month following a 33-49 season. The team interviewed Chicago assistant Adrian Griffin on Tuesday and is expected to interview former Memphis coach Lionel Hollins. The 37-year-old Lue played 11 seasons in the NBA for seven teams. He retired following the 2008 season with Orlando. A pesky defender as a player, Lue worked in the Celtics front office from 2009-11 before joining Rivers staff. The Cavs are being meticulous in their search. After firing Byron Scott following the 2012-13 season, owner Dan Gilbert rushed to re-hire Brown, who guided Cleveland to the NBA finals in 2007 but was dismissed following the 2010 season. The Cavs job became more attractive recently after the club won the NBA draft lottery for the second straight year and third time in four seasons. New general manager David Griffin promised an expansive search not limited to the pro ranks. The team reportedly reached out to Florida coach Billy Donovan, who has previous flirtations with the NBA. This week, Donovan would not guarantee he would be back for another season with the Gators. Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley, however, said Wednesday he has not been contacted by any NBA teams to speak with Donovan. Wholesale Jerseys For Sale .

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, and his Heisman Trophy stock was falling. For a few days, it looked like the BC running back might have a chance to bring home college footballs most prestigious individual honour. Then, Florida prosecutors decided not to bring charges against Winston, removing what was seen as the last impediment to his Heisman candidacy. And Williams was injured in the season finale against Syracuse, finishing with 29 yards in the game -- far short of the almost 190 yards per week he was averaging this season. And that might have been the end of his Heisman chances. "I was more worried about how it was going to affect our bowl chances," Williams said this week after he was announced as one of six Heisman finalists to be invited to the award ceremony on Saturday. "The only opportunity we really missed is being able to get that eighth win against Syracuse. I really wasnt worried about Heisman polls." The nations leading rusher with 175 yards per game and only the 16th player in FBS history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season, Williams was already at a nearby mall shopping for clothes for the Doak Walker Award ceremony when he learned in a text from associate athletic director Barry Gallup that he was a Heisman finalist. Williams won the Doak Walker, which is given to the nations top running back, on Thursday night. Now, he has a side trip to New York for Saturdays Heisman ceremony. "I just feel blessed to have the opportunity to go to the ceremony and be around these other great athletes," Williams said. "Whoever wins it, congratulations to them, because its a monumental achievement." There was a time when running backs routinely brought home the Heisman. They won 11 straight from John Cappelletti in 1973 until Boston Colleges Doug Flutie interruupted the streak in 1984.dddddddddddd. Bo Jackson and Barry Sanders were also good enough to get their names on the trophy along with the quarterbacks and receivers in the 1980s, and four more rushers -- including Ricky Williams -- claimed it in the 90s. But as teams grew more pass-happy in the new millennium, the Heisman has been almost exclusively a quarterbacking prize. Only Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram have broken through against a steady stream of quarterbacks -- 11 in 13 years. Winston is expected to make it 12 of 14 during a season in which he is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Williams said he doesnt feel the need to carry the ball for ball-carriers. "I love being a running back. I love representing running backs," he said. "I dont necessarily think its unfair that its been quarterbacks high up in the Heisman contention lately. That position is hard to play. Its hard to be good at it. With the trend toward teams playing spread offences and throwing the ball more, thats one of the things behind it. You have to have a good quarterback." But BC coach Steve Addazio said he would like to see the Heisman voters reward Williams, a senior who served as a teaching assistant for freshman seminar and is writing a novel in his spare time. "Hes a well-rounded guy," Addazio said. "Hes a guy who values and cherishes his education, his opportunity to play major college football, and being part of a team. Hes got a lot of different interests just like a typical college student would have. Hes not just all focused on football. "I think he represents what Boston College stands for. ... If thats the criteria: outstanding football player, a dominant football player, great integrity, a tremendous person and an outstanding student athlete, theyre really important. In this case thats what he stands for." ' ' '
