Coaching search process goes public

The search for a new University of Lethbridge Pronghorns men's basketball team head coach will go public tonight when three short-listed candidates give public presentations on campus.

Mike Hansen, Richard Bohne and Dave Adams are scheduled to present for 20-30 minutes each in Room PE261. Hansen will take centre stage at 6:30 p.m., followed by Bohne at 7:30 p.m. and Adams at 8:30 p.m.

Hansen (BA '96, BEd '99) is a former Pronghorn player who played under former head coach Dave Crook. He coached at the high school level and has been coaching the Lethbridge College Kodiaks of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference.

Bohne is a Raymond, Alta. native and one of the best players ever produced by southern Alberta. He starred for the University of Calgary Dinos and has most recently been coaching high school basketball in the United States.

Adams (BEd '82) is a former Pronghorn player who also took a brief turn as Pronghorn head coach for the 2001-02 season. He served as a transition between Dave Crook and Mike Connolly, who recently resigned as head coach after seven years with the program.

Tonight's session is open to all.
