Came across these tid-bits while enjoying my coffee this morning…..
Look for James Madison to replace Bino Ranson (departed for Xavier) with an in-house candidate. Head Coach Matt Brady is debating on who he should move up – either Director of Operations Kevin Hargrove or Graduate Assistant Louis Rowe. Rowe served on Dean Keeners staff before Brady was hired and scored 1,055 points in two seasons for the Dukes (1993-1995).
Montana looks like it may hire Carroll assistant Kurt Paulson to replace Nate DuChesne who left for Portland State. Paulson may also be considered for a GA spot if head coach Wayne Tinkle goes in a different direction.
Early leaders for the job at UW-Platteville are current assistant Jeff Gard and former Washington State assistant Mike Heideman. Gard is an alum of UWP and has been on the staff for the past 6 seasons. Heideman was the head coach at UW-Green Bay for 7 seasons (110-95) and most recently on the staff at Washington State. He did not move with Tony Bennett to Virginia and has not been retained at WSU.
