The 76ers coaching search is heating up.
The team interviewed Boston Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga on Tuesday, Yahoo! Sports is reporting. The Sixers are, reportedly, also going to interview Atlanta Hawks assistants Quin Snyder and Kenny Atkinson.
Larranaga, whose father, Jim Larranaga, is the University of Miami coach, was considered a candidate for the Celtics coaching job before Brad Stevens was hired as Doc Rivers' replacement.
The 38-year-old was the coach of the Erie BayHawks for the NBA Development League for two seasons before joining the Celtics staff. Larranaga also had a two-year stint as the Irish national teams coach.
