VCU's Marlene Stollings appears to be the front-runner for Gophers women's basketball head coaching job.
A source tells KSTP's Darren Wolfson that she was on campus Saturday and the two sides have already had contract talks.
Stollings was hired at Virginia Commonwealth by Mike Ellis who is now the Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University of Minnesota. She's coached VCU for two seasons and led them to a 22-10 record this past season.
The Gophers fired Pam Borton on March 28 after her 12th season at the University of Minnesota.
