UMKC has scheduled a press conference for Friday at 11am where they will officially introduce Billy Donlon as their new head men’s basketball coach.
Donlon has been an assistant at Northwestern for the past two seasons, and spent a year on the staff at Michigan before that.
Donlon came to Michigan after spending a decade at Wright State, including the final six years as the program’s head coach. In those six seasons (2010-16), Donlon compiled a 109-94 record with three 20-plus win seasons and helped the Raiders reach the Horizon League Tournament title game three times (2013, ’14, ’16). In addition, Donlon’s squads tied the program marks for wins with 23 in 2013 and conference wins with 13 in 2016.
He will replace Kareem Richardson who was released back in Early March. The head coach at UMKC since 2013, Richardson compiled a 75-118 record.
More on this after the presser tomorrow.
