Report: Jarvis leading candidate at BU

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

Florida Atlantic University associate head coach Mike Jarvis II is a leading candidate for the vacant head coaching position at Boston University, according to a report from the website

Jarvis II just completed his third season as the associate head coach at Florida Atlantic, where he works under his father, Owls head coach and former BU head coach Mike Jarvis. Jarvis II graduated from BU in 1992 after playing four seasons for his father.

Aside from a stint as an assistant at Drexel University during the 1995-96 season and working as Duke University's director of player development beginning in 2004 , Jarvis II has spent the entirety of his coaching career on his father's staffs, having coached at George Washington University from 1992-95 and 1996-98, and St. John's University from 1998-2004 before reuniting with his father at Florida Atlantic in 2008.

Owls team spokesman Justin Johnson said he has no personal knowledge of whether Jarvis has been contacted by BU regarding the job.

While Mike Jarvis I was a good coach for BU, Mike Lynch can do so much better. Let's hope he hires someone who can build off the good Chambers established.
