Former NBA player and coach Reggie Theus is expected to be named head coach of Cal State Northridge men's basketball team. The deal is expected to be finalized in the next week or two, according to a report Tuesday from Sam Amick of USA Today Sports. 

Theus, 55, would replace Bobby Braswell as the coach of the Matadors. Braswell was fired March 21 after 17 years with the team. He went 14-17 overall last year and 5-13 in the Big West Conference before being let go by the school.

The potential hiring of Theus would not mark his foray into turning around a struggling team. He was the head coach of the New Mexico Aggies from 2005-07, taking a team that was 6-24 the season before his arrival and bringing them to the NCAA tournament two of the next three years before he left to coach the Sacramento Kings.  He also spent time under Kurt Rambis as an assistant coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, as an AAU coach in Southern California and on Rick Pitino's coaching staff at Louisville.

Theus also carved out a 13-year career playing in the NBA, becoming one of only seven players to score 19,000 points and 6,000 assists.

Most recently, Theus spent last season coaching the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBDL.
