    Bill Murray as a Norse Fan would be phenomenal.

    Luke has passed on larger or similar programs than NKU, have to give him a call though. Maybe give Ronald Nored a call?

    Luke Murray would take a pay cut.

    If you can make Kelsey happen you absolutely do. He wants to come home, and has even stated that, but does he do it in a lateral move to NKU?

    Fife also has to be an interview, if he accepts it. Have to love that he has seen first hand from Izzo how to develop teams throughout a season and have them playing their best by March.

    Why not Kelly Wells? He is one of the few who has actually proven himself at the high school and small college level.He is an outstanding coach. A lot of folks do not realize that most D 1 coaches go the grad assistant route. Just because they played the game or can recruit does not mean they can teach the game or be a good coach.

    I would think if NKU wants to keep the momentum that they have going, Shumate would be the obvious choice. He’s recruited most of the players on the current roster, and spent a considerable amount of time under Brannen.
