Wake Forest has "significant interest" in Tulsa head coach Danny Manning for their vacant basketball job, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com.

Wake Forest is looking to replace Jeff Bzdelik, who resigned after a record of 51-76 overall and 17-51 in the ACC in his four seasons at the school.

Manning led Tulsa to a 21-13 record this season before losing to UCLA in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Manning led Kansas to the national championship in 1988 and was the No. 1 overall pick of the 1988 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers. He played 15 seasons in the NBA and after retiring joined the staff at Kansas in 2006 and left to take the Tulsa job in 2012.
