    George Mason University gave basketball coach Jim Larranaga permission to talk to the University of Miami about its head coaching job.

    The Hurricanes are looking for a replacement for Frank Haith, who took a coaching job at Missouri several weeks ago.

    Larranaga has spent 14 years at George Mason and took the Patriots on a surprising run to the Final Four in 2006. He is the school and the Colonial Athletic Association's all-time wins leader.

    He led Mason to a 26-6 record this year, including 16 straight wins. They lost to Ohio State in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
