Eight seasons have passed since Jeff Van Gundy last coached in the NBA. That could change if he is hired by the New Orleans Pelicans.

ESPN reported Friday Van Gundy has expressed interest in the Pelicans' coaching position. The report said he is under consideration for the post.

Van Gundy has worked in TV since he last coached in the NBA, with the Houston Rockets in 2007. He previously coached the New York Knicks to the NBA Finals in 1999.
