Get to know the finalists vying to become Northern Michigan’s next head men’s basketball coach [UPDATE]

May 3, 2013 - Matt Wellens

UPDATE: Dan Evans is no longer a finalist after being named head coach at Ohio Dominican [12:16 p.m., May 6]

MARQUETTE — Northern Michigan University interviewed four finalists this week for its vacant head men’s basketball coach position, starting with Hillsdale assistant Dan Evans visiting on Monday, Winona State associate head coach Tom Brown on Tuesday, Valley City State head coach Jeff Kaminsky on Wednesday and Ferris State head coach Bill Sall on Thursday.

The Marquette community and media all had the chance to meet the candidates each day at 2 p.m. inside the Izzo-Mariucci Room of the Berry Events Center, and out of those meet and greets, came these four features on each candidate, as well as one-on-one interviews with Casey Ford of ESPN 970 AM.

I’ve included links to all four Mining Journal features as well as Casey’s interviews. You can hear Casey and I discuss the finalists today on The Sports Pen from 4-5 p.m. at ESPN 970 AM or online at ESPN970.com.

According to NMU athletic director Forrest Karr, the university hopes to have the search wrapped up by the end of next week.
