South Dakota State Dirt…

The search to replace Scott Nagy at South Dakota State is underway, and interviews have begun.  I have heard a bunch of names here. They are:

  • Tom Billeter – Head Coach Augustana (SD).  Won the DII National Championship this past season (34-2). Has also been the head coach at North Dakota State.  Holds a career record of  343-193.
  • Darren DeVaries – Assistant Coach Creighton. Has been on the Bluejays staff for 18-seasons.  Played at Northern Iowa.
  • Kyle Green – Assistant Coach Northern Iowa. Currently in his third stint as an assistant at UNI, and also served as an assistant at Marquette.  Has also been a head coach at Wis.-Eau Claire, Western State, and Lewis.
  • Rob Klinkefus – Assistant Coach South Dakota State.  Had spent the past ten seasons with Scott Nagy at SDSU.  Was an assistant at Buena Vista University (IA) before that.
  • Ryan Miller – Associate Head coach UNLV.  A South Dakota native – went to school Northern State (SD).  In addition to his time at UNLV, has been an assistant at Auburn, Memphis, New Mexico, and Pepperdine.
  • T.J. Otzelberger – Assistant Coach Iowa State.  Has worked at ISU for both Fred Hoiberg and Steve Prohm. Also served as an assistant at Washington.

All indications are that this search could wrap-up this week.  More as I hear it.
