AUSTIN  (AP) – Two people with knowledge of the interview say North Texas women’s basketball coach Karen Aston has met with Texas officials about the vacant Longhorns job.

Aston met with Texas women’s athletic director Chris Plonsky and university President William Powers on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the people who spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the interviews.
