A few things from the NAIA level.
I have heard from multiple sources that NAIA Florida Memorial will hire DeLano Thomas as their new head basketball coach. Thomas had been the head coach at Shawnee State (OH) since 2017, and captured the 2020-2021 NAIA National Championship. An official announcement is expected shortly.
Richard Westerlund has resigned as the head coach and AD at Great Lakes Christian College (OH), and is expected to be named as the new coach at NAIA University of Northern Ohio. He has also been the head coach at Wright State Lake, and Crossroads College. This one should be made official shortly.
NAIA William Woods (MO) is about to wrap-up first round interviews. It sounds like on campus interviews with as many as three candidates will take place next week. Working on names now. They will be vying to replace Charles Belt who became the head coach at NAIA Oklahoma Panhandle State last week.
