Blaney, Gaudio top candidates for Loyola post

April 12, 1997|By Bill Free | Bill Free,SUN STAFF

Former Seton Hall coach George Blaney was interviewed for the Loyola College coaching job Thursday and joins current Army coach Dino Gaudio as the two leading candidates for the vacant position.

Gaudio, 40, is expected to be interviewed in the next couple of days by Loyola athletic director Joe Boylan, who said yesterday he plans to have a new coach "wrapped up next week."

Gaudio has a 36-72 record in four seasons at Army.

Blaney, 57, was dismissed by Seton Hall on March 10 after the Pirates finished 10-18. He was 38-48 in three years at the Big East Conference school. His overall coaching record at four schools is 459-382.

Before taking the Seton Hall job, Blaney had a successful 22-year run at Holy Cross, where he posted a 357-276 record. He was also coach at Dartmouth for three years and had a 37-40 mark before going to Holy Cross.
