Exclusive: Dawkins not interested in Ohio State opening

Men's basketball associate head coach Johnny Dawkins dispelled of any rumors linking him to the head coaching vacancy at Ohio State Monday afternoon.

"I am happy where I am," Dawkins said. "I have not been in touch with anyone in Ohio. I'm very happy to be here and a part of the staff and working with Coach [Krzyzewski]."

A Sunday report in The Columbus Dispatch reported that Dawkins may have been interested in leading the Buckeyes, who have been conducting a nationwide job search since Jim O'Brien was removed after giving $6,000 to a recruit.

Dawkins, a former All-American under Krzyzewski, played for several years in the NBA before returning to work on Krzyzewski's staff.
