A bunch of things that I’ve heard…

I can confirm through a great source that UC Riverside will hire Jordan Lee as their new Director of Basketball Operations. Lee has previously served as an assistant coach at D2 Cal State East Bay. An official announcement here is expected shortly.

I have heard that Dennan Morrow has joined the Jacksonville State men’s basketball staff in an administrative role. Morrow briefly worked as an assistant at Butler CC (KS) this off season, and has also spent time at Chipola College (2018-20), Daytona State College (2017-18), Barton Community College (2015-17) and was a graduate assistant at Kansas State University (2013-15).

I reported last month that Gregg Gottlieb was no longer the Special Assistant to the Head Coach at Oregon State. I can now confirm that he has landed as the Director of Women’s Basketball Operations at Grand Canyon. More this from WHoopDirt.com HERE.

It sounds like Ronnie Thomas has been added to the Longwood staff in an administrative role. He had spent the past five seasons as an assistant at D3 Guilford College. Word on the street is that former UMES assistant Dom Parker is in the mix to replace Thomas at Guilford. More on this one soon.

I have heard that Rob Blouin is no longer the head basketball coach at NAIA Fisher College (MA). He had served as the head coach for the past three seasons, and was on staff as an assistant there before that. More when this one becomes official.

Former Angelina College head coach Todd Neighbors has gotten back into the game, joining the staff at Rudder HS (TX). In addition to his nine seasons as the head coach at Angelina, Neighbors also served as the head coach at Ranger College and Hill College.
