HEAD MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH
NORFOLK STATE UNIVERSITY
“I’d definitely be interested. It’s a great opportunity,” Anthony Evans, who just concluded his sixth season as Norfolk State University’s head coach, told the Journal.
Evans led the 15th-seeded Spartans to their first NCAA tournament ever and a first-round upset of second-seeded Missouri last year; former Marist forward Rob Johnson was a member of that team. From 1999-2001, Evans was a coach at Ulster County Community College, where he earned Region XV Coach of the Year honors in 2001. He was also an assistant coach at SUNY New Paltz.
Stony Brook associate head coach Jay Young, a 1986 Marist graduate, also told the Journal the Red Foxes’ vacancy intrigues him.
“I definitely have an interest in the job,” said Young, who has reached the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Final Four, among other postseason experience in his quarter-century as a coach.
