Weber State athletic director Jerry Bovee called reports that named Wildcats' basketball coach Randy Rahe among the candidates for the vacated head coaching position at Colorado State pure speculation.

"I've talked to Randy and he has not applied for the job and he has not been contacted by Colorado State," Bovee said.

The Fort Collins' Coloradoan listed Rahe as a possible candidate to replace Tim Miles at Colorado State. Miles was recently hired by Nebraska.

Rahe, a former assistant at CSU under current Utah State coach Stew Morrill, completed his sixth season at Weber State and is 120-68 all time there, including 74-22 in the Big Sky Conference. Rahe, three times was named the league's coach of the year, has won three regular-season conference championships.

The Wildcats finished 25-7 this season, 14-2 in BSC play. They finished second behind Montana.

Among those named as possible candidates were CSU interim coach Craig Smith, CSU assistant Niko Medved as well as St. John's assistant Mike Dunlap, Indiana assistant Steve McClain, Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton and Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Rob Jeter.
