A few quick hitters to start the week…
I have heard that CJ Killin is no longer on the staff at Portland State. He had been there for the past two seasons, and was previously an assistant at Idaho State. It sounds like he may wind up at Salt Lake CC (he and head coach Kyle Taylor were together at Idaho State).
A few names kicking around surrounding the search at D2 Clark Atlanta University are Arkansas Little Rock assistant Alfred Jordan and Norfolk State University assistant Jamal Brown. Jordan is a CAU alum, who had sent eight seasons as an assistant there before heading to Little Rock. Brown is in his fifth seasons at NSU, and has also been an assistant at NC A&T, Winston-Salem State, Maryland Eastern Shore, South Carolina State, and Tennessee State. I’m working on other names, but sounds like a decision here could be made this week.
Last week, I referred to the search at D3 Augustana (Daily Dirt – 6/19). It sounds like the two names that I mentioned (former Illinois Tech head coach Todd Kelly, Downers Grove North HS (IL) head coach Jim Thomas) are correct, but Bob Quillman told me he has the final four guys – 99% accurate. I hate mentioning current small college head coaches, so his list is HERE if you want to take a peek.
