A person familiar with the situation says Tulsa coach Danny Manning was touring the Wake Forest campus Wednesday.

The person says Manning has interviewed for the job and the Demon Deacons have "significant interest" in making him their men's basketball coach. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school is not commenting publicly about its search.

The former All-American at Kansas has ties to central North Carolina: he attended high school in Greensboro before moving to Lawrence, Kan., as a senior.

Manning led the Jayhawks to the 1988 national championship and played 15 years in the NBA.

He is 38-29 in two seasons at Tulsa and last month led the Golden Hurricane to the Conference USA tournament title and an NCAA tournament berth.
