Akron men's basketball coach Keith Dambrot told Duquesne University officials he is not interested in becoming the Dukes' next coach, the Akron Beacon Journal reported Sunday.

"They asked if I would be interested. They never offered me the job," Dambrot told the newspaper. "I'm not interested in leaving Akron."

Dambrot, who was LeBron James' coach at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, has been coach at Akron since 2004, leading the Zips to a 184-87 record and two NCAA Tournament berths.

Dambrot's father, Sid, played for the Dukes in the early 1950s.
