University of San Diego coach Ron Caragher told the U-T San Diego that he interviewed with San Jose State on Thursday for its head coach opening.

"They had questions, and I had questions," Caragher told the newspaper. "Right now it's really at the exploratory point. But it was something I felt I had to check out. They said they plan on interviewing other people, so I won't know anything more until early next week."

According to the report, Caragher was in town recruiting and the Morgan Hill native and Bellarmine College Prep alum blended the recruiting trip with a stop in San Jose for the interview.

The Spartans are looking for a replacement for Mike MacIntyre, who departed Monday for Colorado. Defensive coordinator Kent Baer, who is serving as the team's interim head coach for its Dec. 27 matchup with Bowling Green in the Military Bowl, has expressed interest in the job but it's unknown if he has formally interviewed.
