More names at Drake

While 16 college basketball teams remain in the men’s NCAA Tournament heading into this weekend, a slew of others are in the process of filling coaching vacancies. That includes the Drake men’s basketball team, which has been searching for a new head man for — at least — the past three weeks.

Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield Clubb announced on Feb. 28 the initiation of a “national search for a head men’s basketball coach with an unwavering goal in mind — to develop the competitive program that our University, student-athletes and loyal supporters deserve,” she said in a release.

Winning has long been a difficult task for Drake. The program has twice as many 20-loss seasons (10) as it does 20-win seasons. The Bulldogs own one Missouri Valley Conference tournament title, four NCAA Tournament appearances and has just four winning seasons since the turn of the century.
