With the departure of Cornell assistant Marlon Sears to Montclair State, Big Red head coach Bill Courtney is actively on the hunt for his replacement. The three names that I have heard so far are:
- Brion Dunlap – Former assistant coach Holy Cross. Spent five seasons at HC under Milan Brown (2010-15). Also worked for Brown at Mount St. Mary’s for seven seasons.
- James Johnson – Former head coach Virginia Tech. Spent 2012-14 as the head coach of the Hokies (22-41). Worked with Courtney for one season at VTech. Has also been an assistant at Virginia Tech, George Mason, Penn State, College of Charleston, Elon, Old Dominion, and Longwood.
- Orlando Vandross – Former assistant coach Charlotte. Worked for Alan Major for the past five seasons at Charlotte. Prior to that, spent 13 seasons as an assistant at Boston University where he worked for current Virginia Tech head women’s coach Dennis Wolff.
Sounds like this one will be wrapped up fairly quickly. More as I hear it.
