A few things that I’ve heard to kick off June…
- The search to replace Ja Havens at D2 East Central University (OK) is moving quickly. The most interesting name that I’ve heard here is Arkansas assistant Chris Crutchfield. Before joining the Razorbacks staff last spring, he has spent eight seasons at Oklahoma. More on this search as it develops.
- I have heard that D2 Chadron State (NE) has narrowed their search to 3 or 4. I have heard that former Bellevue University (NE) head coach Shane Paben is in the mix, along with two current JUCO head coaches. Chadron may have made an offer late last week.
- Some interesting names floating around the opening at Chipola College (FL). A former HM D1 head coach, and a JUCO coach from their region are both involved. More on this when I can.
- Vance-Granville CC (NC) head coach Greg Ackles has resigned, and has accepted a high school coaching job. Current assistant Lamont Whitaker has been promoted to interim head coach to replace Ackles.
- Eastern Florida State College has added Zach Ferrell as an assistant coach. Ferrell had spent the past seven seasons as the head coach at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy (TN).
