Mid-April Rundown of the Latest NBA Decisions and Coaching Changes

by - Published April 22, 2011 in Full Court Sprints

1. Stetson is hoping that Casey Alexander can duplicate the run of success he helped establish at Belmont as the Hatters’ new coach, according to a press release from Belmont that announces the associate coach’s departure. In 20 years with the Bruins’ program, Alexander helped the team transition from NAIA to the NCAA and worked to position the Bruins as a mid-major powerhouse in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

2. As the deadline for early entrants to the NBA Draft passes, here’s a rundown of some of the recent announcements:

  • Colorado’s Alec Burks: In draft, with agent.
  • Kentucky’s Terrence Jones, Brandon Knight and DeAndre Liggins: All in draft, none with agent.
  • Michigan’s Darius Morris: In draft, without agent.
  • Northwestern’s John Shurna: In draft, without agent.
  • Vanderbilt’s Festus Ezeli, John Jenkins and Jeffrey Taylor: All returning to school.

3. Among the coaching ranks, here’s some more recent movement:

  • Penn State assistant coach Lewis Preston is leaving to coach Kennesaw State.
  • Former Princeton player Mitch Henderson returns to his alma mater as head coach.
  • Syracuse assistant Rob Murphy will move to Eastern Michigan as head coach.

4. And from the rumor mill, Miami’s coaching search continues, with George Mason’s Jim Larranaga as a new target.
