NMU has trimmed down the initial pool of 98 qualified candidates to 16, which according to Karr, includes two NCAA Division II head coaches, five Div. II associate/assistant coaches, six Div. I assistant coaches and two junior college head coaches.
Of the six Div. I assistants, two have previous experience as Div. II head coaches.
No names of the candidates have been released at this time.
NMU will conduct interviews with the 16 candidates over the next two weeks with on-campus interviews with the finalists tentatively scheduled for the week of April 29-May 3.
Karr said he would like the have the finalists on campus by then so current members of the men’s basketball team can meet the finalists.
