Jim Calhoun was reportedly interested in the Boston College head basketball coach's position last week.

This week, it's a new name - and another familiar one.

Former Celtic Walter McCarty, currently one of the team's assistant coaches, is now connected to BC's vacant head coaching spot.

The Boston Herald reports that he is on the Eagles' list of candidates, and McCarty is interested in the job.

“I’m very interested,” McCarty told the Herald. “I want to be highly considered. I love the city. I have great ties in the city. I have a great foundation here, especially with recruiting."

McCarty spent time as an assistant under Rick Pitino with Louisville and as an assistant for the Pacers for one season.
