LUBBOCK, TEXAS (AP) - Texas Tech’s Kristy Curry has interviewed for the vacant LSU coaching job.

Tech spokesman Blayne Beal said Thursday that LSU received permission to talk to Curry. Beal said he didn’t know when Curry, a native of Olla, La., spoke with LSU officials.

Van Chancellor, who coached the Lady Tigers for four seasons, stepped down earlier this month after LSU missed the NCAA tournament for the first time in 13 years.

Texas Tech went 22-11 this season and made the NCAA field for the first time under Curry. She is 88-73 in five years and has signed a five-year extension through the 2016-17 season.

LSU officials declined to comment.
