I have heard from multiple sources who I know, trust -- but no one in authority -- that Duquesne is targeting Long Island coach Jim Ferry— Jerry DiPaola (@JDiPaola_Trib) April 9, 2012
Jim Ferry has been the head coach of the Long Island Blackbirds since the 2002 season, after previously coaching Adelphi, and Plymouth State. Ferry has a overall record of 150-149 with Long Island and has made the NCAA Tournament twice, with a record of 0-2 in the tournament. Fans of Pittsburgh basketball have seen plenty of his LIU teams, thanks to LIU's confrontations with Robert Morris in the Northeast Conference.
