BRYAN -- Former Texas A&M Head Football Coach Dennis Franchione has had his name mentioned for several coaching openings over the last month.
None have panned out, but according to the San Diego Union Tribune, Coach Fran has already interviewed once for the opening at San Diego State and could return to Southern California for a second interview this week.
According to the -dot-com article, UCLA defensive coordinator De Wayne Walker could also get a second look this week.
Coach Fran won 32 games during his 5 seasons at Texas A&M. He resigned following a victory over arch rival Texas in 2-thousand-7.
He moved from the sidelines to the broadcast booth this season, serving as a radio color analyst for ESPN radio.
The Aztecs are looking to replace Chuck Long who was fired following 3 seasons at San Diego State where he won only 9 games and posted a 1 and 7 record this season in the Mountain West.
