After leading Southern to an NCAA Tournament appearance and SWAC regular season championship over the last two seasons, head coach Roman Banks has drawn interest from Texas A&M.
Southern granted permission to Texas A&M to speak with Banks about possibly joining the Aggies’ coaching staff next season, according to a university release.
If Banks joins the staff as an assistant, he would be reunited with current head coach Billy Kennedy, whom he worked under at Southeastern University.
Banks, in a statements made through the university, downplayed Texas A&M’s interest.
“I am honored that Billy Kennedy and Texas A&M would consider me a qualified candidate to serve on the Aggies staff,” Banks said. “Despite the outside interest, my focus remains centered on elevating the profile of Southern University men’s basketball.”
