Ball State has hired University of Arizona assistant coach James Whitford
In the OVC, the price of success often means losing your coach. Coming off their best season in school history, it’s no surprise that Eastern Kentucky head coach Jeff Neubauer is popping up on a lot of team’s radars.
According to The Star Press, Neubauer is one coach being considered for the opening at Ball State University. There’s no word on whether Neubauer has interviewed for the opening, or if he’s even interested.
I’ve reached out to Eastern Kentucky University for comment.
Ball State is a team out of the Mid-American conference that hasn’t had much in the way of recent success. Their last 20 win season came in the 2002-03 season, and the Cardinals managed 15 each of the past two years, causing coach Billy Taylor to be fired.
As for a timeline, Ball State’s athletic director told the paper he hopes to have a new coach hired by next week.
