JUCO DIRT: Des Moines Area CC to name NAIA assistant as new Head Basketball Coach

Story: Adam Nelson (@HD_DirtKing)

Following-up on something that I mentioned earlier today in the DAILY DIRT. The search at Des Moines Area CC has wrapped-up, and they will name NAIA William Penn University associate head coach Blake Sanduist as their new head basketball coach. The official announcement is expected later this evening.

Sandquist, a native of Pleasant Hill, IA (just outside of Des Moines), had been on the WPU basketball staff for the past 12-seasons. During his time there, the Statesmen compiled a 295-74 record, and advanced to 10 NAIA national tournaments. Sandquist was tabbed as the 2021-22 Heart of America Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, following a 31-2 (18-1) season.

Sandquist will replace Brett Putz, who was named as the special assistant to the head coach at Indiana State at the end of June.

More on this when it becomes official.
