JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
If I’m a boys’ high school basketball coach with big aspirations I’m pretty sure that I’d move heaven and earth to try and get on at Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.).
Tuesday, UNLV announced that they were swiping Pilots’ coach Todd Simon and making him their new assistant.
Before Simon, Mike Peck led the Pilots. He’s now the head coach for the NBDL’s Idaho Stampede.
Talk about a coaching carousel!
Who’s got next at Findlay?
