Interim women's basketball coach Tom Marryott was promoted to head coach at the Naval Academy, athletic director Chet Gladchuk announced yesterday.

Marryott, 40, led the Midshipmen to a 13-17 record against one of the toughest schedules in school history. Navy lost to four teams that advanced to postseason tournaments: Texas, Arizona, Seton Hall and Colgate.

The squad became Navy's first to win at Holy Cross and ended a 13-game losing streak to Bucknell.

Towson to interview 3

Towson officials will interview three candidates today for the men's coaching job - Montana coach Pat Kennedy, Clemson assistant Ron Bradley and North Carolina State assistant Larry Hunter - a source familiar with the process said yesterday.

Athletic director Wayne Edwards declined to comment on the search process, only to say he hopes to have a new coach hired by "this time next week."

Edwards said Connecticut assistant George Blaney has never been a candidate, as reported yesterday in The Sun.
