CHARLESTON, SC - College of Charleston head coach Monte Lee will interview for the head coaching vacancy at Arizona State this week according to a report from Baseball America on Saturday night.

When reached by Live 5 Sports, Lee said he'd have no comment. An official from the College of Charleston also declined to comment.

Lee just completed his 6th, and by most accounts, best season with the Cougars leading the team to the Super Regionals for just the 2nd time in program history with a 44-19 record. He's compiled a record of 231-130 in his time with the College and led them to 3 NCAA tournament appearances.

He's also led the team to a Southern Conference regular season title and the tournament title from the school's inaugural year in the CAA.

Arizona State is looking to replace Tim Emsay who was let go last week after 5 seasons.

The Sun Devils job would, most likely, provide a good size raise for Lee. Emsay made close to $200,000 this season after getting an extension in 2013. Lee made just over $115,000 with the College this season.
