Bryant DIII (Season 89) - Coaching Carousel
In probably the biggest coaching changes early on in this off-season, bisoneer
has ended a 17-season tenure at Loras
to move up to DII and take over at Winston-Salem State
. He had enjoyed a lot of success at Loras, leading them to the playoffs in all but one season (80), and winning the IIAC conference championship 14 times out of 17. He moves up to DII with an impressive 233-42 record, of which 23-15 are in the playoffs. Add to that the National Championship that he has won with the school in Season 81, and you have one heck of a resume.
Winston-Salem State can consider themselves very luck to have such a profile take over, considering it is a school that only had 2 season out of the last 39 under human coaches! bisoneer will have this work cut out, as Winston-Salem State didn't have any season with double-digit wins since season 45, and that was 44 seasons ago folks... The school also plays in the CIAA, where former dominant DIII coach jjmurphy1127 is enjoying a lot of success at Virginia Union. GL to bisoneer in DII.
Later during the day, bisoneer was replaced by ahaney257
, who comes from a 4-year span at Bethany (WV)
, in which he went 25-27.
In another coaching change, Trinity (TX)
, who has spent his first 3 seasons in Bryant with Kenyon
, leading them to a 24-15 record. Trinity (TX) had only spent one year under simAI, after soupman78734
left to team to move to North Alabama
Some other coaches have ended their DIII tenure to close out the day, goforbroke
after 5 seasons (49-17, 0-1 in 1 playoff appearance), and GB1
leaving St. Norbert
after 10 seasons (93-46, 1-2 in 2 playoff appearances, 1 MWC conference championship).
In the first shocking news of the day, lawhorns
has decided to end his 15-year tenure at Colorado College
, and move up to DII to take over at Lenoir-Rhyne
. He moves up with a very encouraging 177-42 record, 7 conference championships, and 11 playoff appearances. lawhorns' biggest woe in DIII was the playoffs, as he went one-and-done on 7 of his 11 appearances, and has an overall playoff record of 6-11, with his best performance being a loss against the eventual National Champions Concordia (WI) in the Final Four in Season 83. He will take over a team that was transformed from a pretender to a semi-contender by jayrudinger
, as Lenoir-Rhyne has managed 2 consecutive 10-win seasons, including 2 playoff appearances over the last couple of seasons (they went 1-2 in the playoffs).
Later during the day, jarjarbinks
has also decided to move up to DII after 3 seasons at Greenville
, in which he went 27-12, improving from 8 to 9, and then 10 wins season after season, without managing to make the playoffs however. He has decided to take over at Fort Hays State
, who has won 2 conference championships and managed 4 playoff appearances in 4 seasons under headpirate. geoffdaddy
