N. Illinois interviews McCarney

University of South Florida defensive line coach Dan McCarney has interviewed for the head coaching position at Northern Illinois.
NIU is looking to replace Joe Novak, who retired after 12 years at NIU on Nov. 26.
Before coming to USF in February, McCarney had been a head coach for 12 seasons at Iowa State. He led Iowa State to five bowl games in the past seven seasons and was the 2004 Big 12 Coach of the Year.
This season at USF, McCarney made an immediate impact. He tutored sophomore DE George Selvie, a former offensive lineman, who is the nation’s leader in tackles for loss (31.5) and second in sacks (14.5).
If McCarney leaves, USF coach Jim Leavitt will be looking for his fourth defensive line coach in as many years after having to replace Earl Lane, who went to LSU, in 2006 and Bernard Clark, who went to Florida International, in 2007.
McCarney could not be reached for comment Tuesday night, but has said in the past about his desire to be a head coach again.
