Iowa has interviewed two candidates and will interview two more next week, reports Perfect Game's Kendall Rogers.

Rogers (@KendallRogersPG), one of the nation's prominent college baseball reporters, wrote on Twitter the school interviewed Creighton Coach Ed Servais and Indiana State Coach Rick Heller on Tuesday and will interview St. Louis Coach Darin Hendrickson and Texas A&M associate head coach Andy Sawyers next Tuesday.

Steve Roe, a member of Iowa's baseball selection committee, confirmed Tuesday to The Gazette that interviews are underway and more are scheduled. Roe, the school's sports information director, declined to comment about specifics.

"We're still interviewing candidates," Roe said Friday morning.

Iowa associate athletics director Fred Mims, who is leading the committee, also declined to offer details. Tuesday he said, ďAll I can say is we have a great pool of candidates."

A blogger for College Baseball Daily wrote Hendrickson will be named head coach. According to an update on the blog, both Hendrickson and St. Louis officials are denying the report.
