DAILY DIRT – 05-13-24 – HoopDirt

A few minor university search updates…

According to multiple sources, the number of searches at D3 RIT is still only five. Names I’ve heard include former Canisius head coach Reggie Witherspoon, former Loyola (MD) assistant Matt Miller, Christopher Newport assistant head coach Dom Parker, Rochester assistant Chris Manning and a current Liberty League head coach. There could also be another former D1 HC from the area lurking.

It appears D3 Nichols College had over 110 applicants for their head coaching spot, which opened when Brock Erickson left for UTRGV in April. It sounds like the field has been narrowed after the first Zoom round. Some names I’ve heard here include Dartmouth DBO Garvin McAlister (a former Nichols assistant), Brandeis assistant Irving Eggleston, Tufts assistant James Holmes, a current MASCAC head coach, a current NAC head coach, and “several” D1 -assistants. Will roll with more once I can confirm a final group.

I heard the search at D3 Bridgewater has been completed. It looks like they are going with a current D3 assistant from the list I published in the Daily Dirt on 5/1. More on this when I can…

From earlier this morning… D2 Georgian Court will name former Robert Morris assistant Dave Fedor as their new head coach. More about that move -> D2 DIRT.

I have heard that D3 SUNY Morrisville assistant Mike Sugamosto is expected to be named the next head coach at Corning Community College (NY). Sugamosto spent the past two seasons as the lead assistant at Morrisville. He also spent two seasons as an assistant at Cazenovia College and also spent four years as General Manager/Managing Partner of the Syracuse Stallions, a minor league basketball team in the TBL.
