Jim Ferry New Duquesne Basketball Coach, According To Report

Jim Ferry is the new head basketball coach for the Duquesne basketball team, according to multiple reports. The hire ends a 17-day coaching search for the program after it fired Ron Everhart.

Ferry brings in an impressive resume from his past 10 seasons as head coach at Long Island where he was a two-time Northeastern Conference Coach of the Year (2005, 2011). Just this past season, Ferry helped lead Long Island to a 25-9 overall record and its second consecutive NEC title.

Last week, Kentucky Wildcats assistant coach and former Pittsburgh player Orlando Antigua was a popular name to fill the head coaching vacancy, but those reports fizzled.

As for Ferrry, the man is about to get paid.
