Friday's Daily Briefing: Jarvis II a candidate for head coaching job at Boston U

It's always been assumed that FAU basketball coach Mike Jarvis has been developing a program that would ultimately be taken over by his son, associate head coach Mike Jarvis II.

Deuce may take over a program previously coached by his father even earlier than expected. has learned  that the younger Jarvis is one of the leading candidates for the currently vacant head coaching position at Boston University.

Deuce played for BU, where his father coached from 1985-90. He's also been an assistant at George Washington, Drexel, St. John's and Duke before rejoining his father at FAU.

Another top candidate, Maryland assistant Scott Spinelli, played for the elder Jarvis at BU.

BU is expected to make the decision quickly. We'll keep FAU fans apprised of any new developments.

Should Deuce get the job, he'd be the second FAU assistant to leave Boca Raton this off-season. Matt McCall recently moved back to Gainesville to join Billy Donovan's staff at Florida.
