Some things that I’ve heard…
- North Texas head coach Grant McCasland will have an contract extension announced shortly. Last season, his first at UNT, McCasland went 20-18 (8-10 C-USA), and led the Mean Green to the CBI Championship.
- I have heard that Steve Bridgeman will be named as an assistant coach on Danny Sancomb’s new staff at California University (PA). Bridgeman has worked at West Virginia Wesleyan for the past two seasons and previously served as an assistant at Goshen College. West Virginia Wesleyan now has an open spot – 10 months, $20k with benefits. Complete job posting is HERE.
- It sounds like Gabe Palmquist-Clark will join the basketball staff at Howard College (TX). He has also worked at Vincennes University (IN), Kilgore College (TX), and Western Oregon.
- I have heard that Bryce Carlton will become an assistant coach at Mineral Area College (MO). He spent last season as an assistant at Odessa College (TX), and before that worked for two years on Ryan Ridder’s staff at Daytona State.
- Al Genz has joined the Rowan College at Gloucester County (NJ) basketball staff. He spent the past three seasons as the top assistant to new RCGC head coach Will Wareham at Cumberland CC (NJ). Also, Jared Price, who was on the RCGC staff last season, will be retained by Wareham.
- DIII Nichols College has made their choice on a new head coach. More on this one shortly…
- Lynn University graduate assistant Adam Kaplan has accepted a job in basketball operations/pro scouting with Maccabi Haifa in Israel. He’s one of the DirtKing’s former players (and assistant), so I have to show him some love. A hard working kid who will kill it out there!
