Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder on Monday became the 10th person to interview for the Charlotte Bobcats' head coaching opening, the Associated Press reports.

Snyder, who formerly coached at the University of Missouri, has never been an NBA head coach.

The report also said Charlotte could still interview one more person for the job before narrowing down the list to a smaller group of finalists who would presumably then interview with owner Michael Jordan. Long-time Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan and former Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan are among the people who have interviewed for the position. Former NBA star Patrick Ewing also interviewed, but according to reports, Jordan called him to inform him he had been eliminated from consideration.
