The New York Daily News is reporting that Jerry Dunn is one of the finalists for the James Madison head coaching job.
Former St. Johnâ€™s coach Mike Jarvis, Marist coach Matt Brady and Michgian assistant Jerry Dunn, formerly the head coach at Penn State, are apparently the three finalists for the James Madison job.
Dunn has been reported to be looking for a head coaching job since before he was brought on board at Michigan and this move wouldn’t be very surprising. However this mixed with the rumors of Mike Jackson’s possibility of getting the UofD job are certainly worrisome. It would be hard to lose two assistants in one year I would assume. Of course the sexy names for a new assistant are people like Saginaw’s Lou Dawkins who almost got a spot on Tubby’s bench last year and Jalen Rose (don’t see this ever happening). Another name that would be worth paying attention to is Oronde Taliaferro from Arkansas. I would guess that Brian Townsend might get a shot to move up the ladder from Director of Basketball operations to an assistant coaching spot.
