Northeast Conference commissioner Chris Monasch and St. Peter's College athletic director Bill Stein have been interviewed for the Loyola College athletic director's job, a source familiar with the search to replace Tom Brennan -- who resigned Oct. 1 -- said yesterday.
The source said that Monasch and Stein are coming back in the next week for more interviews with the two committees conducting the search under the direction of Thomas Scheye, academic vice president and provost at Loyola.
Monasch and Stein join former Washington Bullets general manager Bob Ferry as three of six serious candidates for the position.
Ferry said Sunday night that he has held several conversations with the committees.
Scheye wouldn't confirm or deny that Monasch and Stein had been interviewed by the committees, one of which is composed of Loyola alumni and friends, including Jim McKay, ABC-TV sportscaster; Pam Shriver, pro tennis player; and Joe De Francis, owner of Pimlico and Laurel race courses.
