While former Iowa State assistant coach Paul Rhoads gets ready to ascend to the head coaching position there, his old boss is trying to become the head football coach at Army.
Dan McCarney is interviewing for the job this weekend in Washington, D.C. Army fired coach Stan Brock last week after the Cadets went 3-9, including a season-ending 34-0 loss to Navy.
Army Athletic Director Kevin Anderson said hiring someone with West Point ties would be an ideal situation. McCarney currently is the defensive line coach at Florida. He interviewed for the New Mexico job that went to then-Illinois offensive coordinator Mike Locksley.
