LSC Roundup 12-29

Recruiting Center

Men's Basketball News
Tarleton State 84, Dallas Christian 55 - box score - Texans close calendar year with win


Buffs aim to carry momentum over
Short memories.

That's the mindset West Texas A&M men's basketball coach Rick Cooper wants his players to perform with against New Mexico Highlands at 7 p.m. today in the First United Bank Center.

Not that Cooper's Buffs have been struggling.

Just the opposite.

Football News
Rebowe among Nicholls applicants
The interim coach at Nicholls State, the former coach at UL Monroe and a key assistant for the UL Ragin' Cajuns are among 42 applicants to replace Jay Thomas as football coach.

Thomas was fired Nov. 20 after a 3-8 season. In six seasons with the Colonels, his record was 27-35. The search committee hopes to have three finalists next week for university administrators and athletic director Rob Bernardi to consider, committee chairman Jason Dagate said. Dagate said there are so many good applicants that it's taking a while to narrow down the number.

"We are excited with the amount of interest this job has generated," he said.

Kent Keith is the interim coach at Nicholls. Other Louisiana applicants include Charlie Weatherbie, whose contract at ULM was not renewed after his seventh season and a 31-51 record, and UL linebackers coach Tim Rebowe. Grambling State offensive coordinator and offensive line coach James Spady also applied.

Other applicants included eight current college coaches and about 20 assistants.

The head coaches were Ron Roberts of Delta State, Don Carthel of West Texas A&M, Dale Carlon of Ohio Dominican, Lou Esposito of Saint Joseph's College, Alan Fiddler of Glenville State College, Danny Hugh Freeze Jr. of Lambuth, Paul Hamilton of Brevard and Jay Mills of Charleston Southern.

Dagate said the committee is most interested in applicants' approaches to academics and the university's desire to recruit local athletes. The university would also like someone with head coaching experience on any level and some college coaching experience.
