Former Utah Jazz guard Jeff Hornacek will interview for the Philadelphia 76ers' head coaching position, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Sixers are looking at a number of candidates to fill the hole left by Doug Collins, who parted ways with the team after the regular season ended, and the Sixers expect to begin the interviewing process next week.

Currently an assistant coach with the Jazz, Hornacek played two seasons with the Sixers from 1992-94 but spent most of his 14-year career in the Utah backcourt. It's also worth mentioning that Hornacek, who turns 50 tomorrow, played the first six seasons of his NBA career with the Phoenix Suns, a team also looking to hire a new head coach after letting go head coach Alvin Gentry earlier last season.

According to Wojnarowski, the Sixers organization is also considering Golden State Warriors assistant coach Mike Malone, the highest-paid assistant coach in the league for the past two years.
