Expect Richmond athletic director Jim Miller to move fast on the search for a men's basketball coach to replace Jerry Wainwright.

He's likely to ponder his finalists in the next two days and start contacting coaches Saturday. Don't be surprised if there is an announcement by early next week. Recruiting is going on for another two weeks, and Miller is savvy enough to know this can't drag on very long. He has the benefit of being at a private school, so he can move fast without being limited by state hiring practices that require waiting until a job is posted for 30 days.
