Tony Barbee is one of three candidates in the mix for a head coaching job in the Sun Belt Conference.
According to ESPN, Barbee is a contender for the new opening at Georgia State. Georgia State is fresh off an NCAA Tournament appearance, but lost its head coach, Ron Hunter, to Tulane after seven years on the job. Hunter is somewhat of an NCAA Tournament legend; you may remember him falling off his stool after his son, RJ Hunter, hit a deep game-winner to upset No. 3 seed Baylor in the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
Boston Celtics assistant Micah Shrewsberry and NC Central head coach LeVelle Moton are the two other names in consideration to replace Hunter at Georgia State, the reigning Sun Belt regular season and conference champion.
