Northwest Nazarene rumors….

I’ve started hearing a few names that are rumored to be involved with the Northwest Nazarene job. From all indications, NNU Athletic Director Rich Sanders has been moving quickly here to replace Tim Hills who announced his retirement a few weeks ago. Here are the names that I’ve heard…

Brandon Rinta – Assistant Coach Northwest Nazarene. Has been at NNU for the past 6 seasons. Also worked as an assistant at DI Eastern Washington.

Coby Weidenbach – Head Coach Wenatchee Valley CC. May be the favorite here. Played at NNU, and is the son of NNU Hall of Fame basketball coach Ed Weidenbach.

Rolando Garcia – Head Coach Columbia Basin CC. Played at NNU. Was an honorable mention All-American his senior season.

Ryan Orton – Assistant Coach Alaska-Ankorage. A former assistant at NNU. Knows the league very well.

Look for this to be done sometime in early March. I’ll keep you posted as I hear more.
