Nichols College will name UIC assistant Brock Erickson as their new head men’s basketball coach. Erickson was first mentioned as a finalist by HoopDirt.com back on July 9th (DAILY DIRT). Shortly after that report, he was offered the job.
Before joining the UIC staff prior to last season, Erickson had spent two years as the Associate Head Coach at Bryant University. New Nichols President Glenn Sulmasy (started on 7/1) was formerly the provost and chief academic officer at Bryant, and was reportedly very involved in this decision.
Erickson has also served as an assistant at Kent State and Iona, and spent time as the head coach at State College of Florida.
An official announcement is expected shortly.
