Report: 2 NBA names emerge in Vanderbilt's quest to find replacement for Bryce Drew
After a historically bad 0-18 SEC campaign this year, the Vanderbilt Commodores fired coach Bryce Drew and are searching for his replacement.
The search continues as of Sunday, but according to a report, two names from NBA coaching staffs have emerged as possibilities.
Per Evan Daniels of 247Sports, Memphis Grizzlies assistant Jerry Stackhouse and Charlotte Hornets assistant Ronald Nored are two potential candidates:

Interestingly, Nored just turned 29 years old on March 1 of this year, so he’d be one of the youngest coaches in all of college basketball.
Stackhouse, on the other hand, is 44 years old and played in the NBA for 18 years, retiring in 2013. Either one would bring NBA experience to the Vandy bench, but it seems as if a decision is still a few days away, at least.
