After parting ways with former head coach Adjalma Becheli last week, USU Eastern’s search for a new men’s basketball coach is underway.
“We are right in the middle of a nation wide search for a new men’s basketball coach for the first time in eight years,” said associate vice president Greg Dart. “Now is the time for the next stage in this program that has a lot of history and upside.”
The position closes April 15, 2020.
The day before Becheli was released, former assistant coach Ray Jones accepted the head coach position at Pinnacle High School after three years at USU Eastern. Beside coaching basketball, he will coach track and baseball plus teach physical education.
“As far as my list I think there are three things we will be looking for,” said Dart. “One is a community supporter and who understands community basketball. Two, we are looking for someone who brings a positive energy. And third, we need someone who can recruit.”
