DAILY DIRT Saturday Edition: 3/21/20

Not much difference between a weekday and a weekend at this point I guess. Here are a couple of updates on D2 searches…

  • It sounds like the search at Shaw University (NC) has wrapped up. Dominique Stephens had served as the interim head coach here following the resignation of Joel Hopkins back in October. Word on the street is the former UMES, Hampton, and Winston-Salem State head coach Bobby Collins is the leader here. The names that I’ve heard here are:
    • Bobby Collins –  Assistant Coach South Carolina State
    • Brian Graves – Assistant Coach North Carolina Central
    • Dominic Parker- Assistant Coach Maryland Eastern Shore
    • Anquell McCollum – Assistant Coach Fayetteville State University
    • Drew Williamson – Assistant Coach Virginia State
  • The search at King University (TN) is moving quickly now as they seek to replace George Pitts who announced his retirement. I heard that five phone interviews took place yesterday, and the next round will be narrowed down to 2-3. Working on the complete list, but three of the names that I’ve heard are:
    • Kelly Combs – Head Coach Athletes in Action (former head coach Union College (KY)
    • Pawel Mrozik  – Former assistant at Mercer and Cal Poly
    • Scott Fields – King U alum who has had a ton of professional and overseas coaching stops
  • The up-to-date list of coaching changes at ALL levels can be found HERE.
