David Ragland Named Assistant Coach with Utah State Basketball

Evansville native and who many considered the runner up for the Evansville job is now an assistant at Utah State.

It is possible that we could play Utah State and David in the Mountain West/Missouri Valley Challenge in future years.

Congratulations to David and his family.

I am sure there might be a little more money involved this time, but it appears Ragland has been pretty mobile, jumping from one mid to another. Indiana State, Valpo, Utah State. Maybe there is more to these moves than it appears, but it raises an eyebrow.

This is the 2nd time in the last few weeks that a MWC school has poached one of our coaches for a lateral move. This is the conference we challenge every year. If the MVC wants to be considered on the same playing level, then we need to find a way to keep our coaches from being poached by similar leagues.

Better to make a voluntary move, even if it is lateral, than to be searching for a job because your team tanked and the natives are crying for a new coaching regime.
