Robert Lynn has been offered the job to become the Newport Harbor High boys' water polo and boys' swim coach, according to a source who requested anonymity.
He is close to deciding, the source said.
Lynn declined to comment on questions dealing with coaching jobs. Newport Harbor Principal Michael Vossen said Tuesday night that he could not comment on the situation.
Lynn, a 2000 Olympian and an assistant coach with the 2008 silver-medal winning U.S. men's Olympic team, has been the coach at Harvard-Westlake, where he was hired as boys' and girls' water polo coach in 2009.
Lynn remains an assistant coach for the U.S. men's senior national team and he's a co-coach of the U.S. junior national team.
Lynn was head coach of the youth national team in 2006 and 2007 and was later named assistant coach of the men's national team in December 2007.
