San Jose State basketball has an unexpected July coaching opening, after the abrupt resignation of Dave Wojcik on Monday. A fairly big name coach reportedly has interest in the job.

Yesterday, the 48-year old Wojcik announced his resignation, citing "personal reasons" for stepping away from the Spartans head coaching job.

In four years at SJSU, he went 32-90, with a 12-60 Mountain West record.

He was coming off of his best season with the Spartans, a 14-16 (7-11) campaign.

A July opening is not an envious position for any team, but a pretty familiar name reportedly has interest in the opening, according to ESPN's Marc J. Spears: former Indiana and current Texas Southern head coach Mike Davis.

Davis is famous for being Bobby Knight's replacement at Indiana, and had some solid initial success, reaching the National Championship Game in his second year, where the Hoosiers lost to Maryland.

He resigned from the job late in the 2006 season, before the Hooisers ultimately made the NCAA Tournament, after two seasons falling short of the Big Dance. The following year, he took over at UAB, where he went 122-73 and made the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Since 2012, he's been at Texas Southern, where he's won the SWAC four times in five years and has reached three NCAA Tournaments.
