Still tons of speculation and not a lot of answers at this point. And that seems to be the way the Mount handles things. Doubt we'll know anything concrete until it gets done.
Originally I heard there was a big push for Matt Henry. That seems to be cooling.
The other three finalists when Burke got the job were apparently Pete Strickland, Jamion Christian and Brion Dunlap. Marty Ingelsby and Gary Nottingham (Google that one). Hoopdirt.com is reporting that a lot of the early interest seems to be focusing on George Washington assistant Pete Strickland.
The former Coastal Carolina coach served this past year on Mike Lonergan's staff with the Colonials. Lonergan himself once hoped for the Mount job. Prior to that he was with Sidney Lowe at NC State.
Some other names who may also come up Andy Enfield (head coach at Florida Gulf Coast), Mike Rhoads (Virginia Commonwealth assistant), Chris Harney (St. Mary's head coach), Kurt Kanaskie (Navy assistant), Kevin McGeehan (associate head coach Richmond), Mike McKee (Denver assistant), Duffy Conroy (Milwaukee assistant), Kenny Payne (assistant coach Kentucky), Brad Frederick (Vanderbilt assistant), Mike Farrelly (Niagara assistant - former Mt. St. Mary's assistant), Ben Wilkins (William & Mary assistant), Robert Wilkes (Old Dominion assistant), David Duda (St Joe's assistant), Tom Dickman (Hood head coach), Tony Newsom (Fairfield assistant) and I'm sure over the course of this search there will be a few more that pop up - along with the several I mentioned yesterday.
