John Olive, an assistant coach at Villanova, is interested in the vacant head basketball coaching position at George Washington but is not considered a front-runner, according to George Washington's athletic director, Steve Bilsky. George Washington bought out the contract of head coach John Kuester after last season. Kuester had one year remaining on a five-year pact. Bilsky said yesterday that he might interview Olive next week, but that he had already talked to other candidates who have head-coaching experience.

Some team in the NBA is going to draft Wake Forest's Tyrone "Muggsy" Bogues today. Somebody is going to pull the trigger and choose the 5-3 point guard. Somebody is going to take the risk. But which team? And in which round? "One interesting thing about Bogues," 76ers general manager John Nash said, "is that, if the talent level among two competing teams is relatively equal, his team is the one that is going to be successful. "Several years ago, that was the feeling (former assistant coach)

P.J. Carlesimo, whose tenure at Golden State was marked by the Latrell Sprewell choking episode two years ago, was fired yesterday by the Warriors. Carlesimo, whose coaching style was questioned both before and after the Dec. 1, 1997, attack, fell victim of his own poor record. In his third season with the Warriors, the team was 6-21 - the second-worst mark in the league. He had an overall mark of 46-113 with Golden State. "It's been very difficult," said general manager Garry St. Jean, who took over as coach.

The 76ers' search for a new general manager has led owner Harold Katz to interviews with New Jersey Nets assistant coach Brendan Suhr and Los Angeles Lakers assistant general manager Mitch Kupchak. Sources have told the Daily News that Kupchak visited with Katz earlier this week in Miami. It is not known exactly where or when Suhr visited. It is believed that Suhr has a clause in his Nets contract that would allow him to leave. The Sixers were said to have asked the Lakers for permission to speak with Kupchak sometime in the last two weeks.

Coach P.J. Carlesimo, whose tenure at Golden State was marked by Latrell Sprewell's choking him two years ago, was fired yesterday by the Warriors. Carlesimo, 46-123 with the Warriors, was dismissed midway through his third season with the team after its 6-21 start, the second-worst record in the league. General manager Garry St. Jean, a former NBA coach with Sacramento, took over as coach and agreed to a multiyear contract encompassing the responsibilities of both jobs. "When you've got a situation in our profession where it isn't working, there comes a point in time when a change is needed," St. Jean said.

One Philly guy is out, another Philly guy is in. That was the news from Washington yesterday, when the Bullets announced that Jim Lynam had been fired as coach and replaced on an interim basis by Bob Staak. With the likes of Chris Webber, Juwan Howard and Rod Strickland, the Bullets had been expected to compete for the Atlantic Division title this season, but instead were 22-24 under Lynam. On their current road trip, they lost by 30 points to the Lakers Sunday and by 22 points to the Jazz Monday.

He hasn't had a technical foul since he took the job. Not in the preseason, not in the regular season. Kevin Loughery, in his first season coaching the Miami Heat, in his 14th season coaching in the NBA, seems as proud of that as anything. That's the same Kevin Loughery who, over the last 21 years, had accumulated a whopping 335 technicals. Within that same period, only Sacramento coach Dick Motta (357 at the start of this season) has had more. But, yes, he yells during practice.

Jim Lynam had been on the other end of these visits, so he knew what it meant yesterday when Washington general manager Wes Unseld summoned him for a morning meeting at the team's hotel in Denver. It meant Lynam was about to become the ex-coach of the Bullets. "I felt that it was necessary at this time to make a change in the head coaching position," Unseld said after firing Lynam. "We have committed a tremendous amount of resources to this team, but it was just not working.

When Sam Ivy played high school ball for Webster Groves in St. Louis, he wasn't able to make the obligatory summer-camp showcase rounds. His mother died while he was in the 10th grade, and his time and energy then became channeled into such things as trying to keep a roof over his family and food in the refrigerator. But despite spending his summers working in his father's janitorial business instead of trying to make a name for himself on the court, he wound up at Wake Forest.

According to the University of Pennsylvania's athletic director, Paul Rubincam, a new basketball coach should be in place by mid-April. Rubincam yesterday convened the first meeting of a search committee that will choose a coach to succeed Tom Schneider. Schneider resigned two weeks ago to take the head basketball coaching job at Loyola-Baltimore, which will be a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference next season. "We're going to take our time and get the best man possible," said Rubincam, who filled his vacant football coaching job last week by naming a former Penn assistant coach, Gary Steele.

NONE OF THEM wanted to say what was inside them after the fact. The bonds were too strong. The life experiences were too intertwined. There they were, roughly a month ago, former Penn coaches Bob Weinhauer and Jack McCloskey, onetime Penn assistant Bob Staak and former Temple coach Don Casey in Jupiter, Fla., visiting with Chuck Daly. They talked, they laughed, they reminisced. "Chuck always knew where the best spots for dinner were," Casey recalled. "Even then, he had a little bistro picked out where we were all going to go. He was looking forward to it. And then the doctors told me he couldn't go, and he was sad. But he told us to go. He handed me three $100 bills to pay for it. " There were vignettes everywhere, some about the man, some about the coach.

Isiah Thomas, the Detroit Pistons' all-star guard, could miss the remainder of the regular season after he injured his left hand in a fight with Chicago's Bill Cartwright on Friday night. Thomas, who, with Cartwright, was ejected in the first quarter of the Pistons' 114-112 victory over the Bulls, will be examined today at Detroit's Harper Hospital, team spokesman Matt Dobek said yesterday. "At this point, we feel there could be a slight fracture in the hand," assistant coach Brendan Suhr said.
