Just like it's big-city relative, a

:00 The former, Fleming, Ferrum and
Radford star, who is currently an
assistant coach at North Carolina, is
at the top of the Spiders' wish list.

In fact, several sources tell us
that the job is Robinson's if he wants
it and that an offer is on the table.

Robinson played golf at a UNC
fundraiser today, and is expected to

make up his mind by week's end.
