It’s been crazy busy at the JUCO level over the past few weeks. Here are some very quick updates:
Hutchinson CC (KS): I have heard from multiple sources that Cowley College (KS) Tommy DeSalme is the leader here, and could be introduced as early as today. DeSalme is the all-time wins leader at Cowley.
Cowley College (KS): With the impending departure of DeSalme, it sounds like current Northern Oklahoma Tonkawa head coach Donnie Jackson is the early leader here. Multiple sources tell me that he was scheduled to interview at Seward County CC (KS) next week, but has since withdrawn from consideration there.
Seward County CC (KS): I have heard from a bunch of people that on campus interviews are scheduled for next week. The original number was three, but it’s down to two now after taking away Jackson. I can confirm that one of the remaining candidates is a current NJCAA D1 head coach.
Cloud County CC (KS): The hiring of Devin Kastrup is done here. He had spent the past two seasons as the head coach at Southwestern CC (IA). I’ll have the press release posted shortly.
Independence CC (KS): With head coach Bill Morosco headed to Garden City CC (KS), I have heard that current ICC assistant Justin Mann is the leader here. More on this one as it develops.
