Dwane Casey, currently an assistant coach under Rick Carlisle for the Dallas Mavericks, confirmed via e-mail that he met today with 76ers General Manager Ed Stefanski.

The Sixers said they have no comment.

Casey said "I have met with Ed and the meeting went well."

Casey is the Sixers second confirmed interview -- Eddie Jordan interviewed last Friday. Boston Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau is also a confirmed candidate, although it is unknown when he will interview.

Casey, 52, spent 11 years as an assistant coach with the Seattle Supersonics and then 1 1/2 seasons as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Casey finished his tenure with Minnesota with a 53-69 record. He coached all of the 2005-06 season and 40 games of the 2006-07 season before being fired.

Casey played at the University of Kentucky and spent 5 years coaching in Japan.
