UW-Milwaukee is searching for Bruce Pearl's replacement.

School officials interviewed Wisconsin assistant Rob Jeter and Metropolitan State coach Mike Dunlap on Friday in St. Louis, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Jeter told the paper that there was interest on both sides.

"We scored in the 90s at Platteville, so UWM's style is no different than what I'm used to," he said. "I don't know how I feel about jacking up the first three-pointer, but I definitely would want to push the ball."

Dunlap is 227-40 in eight seasons at Metro State, a Division II school in Denver.

"We talked philosophy," Dunlap told the paper. "They didn't tell me a whole lot, but I'm sure they have their process on how they want to handle things.

"The ball is in their court now."
