      The search committee had a great meeting on Wednesday night with good participation and discussion.

      We have a room reserved with NMU Audio Visual for next Monday from 12:30-7:30pm (7 Skype interviews scheduled), next Wednesday from 8:00am to 2:00pm (6 Skype interviews scheduled) and next Wednesday from 4:00-7:00pm (3 Skype interviews scheduled).

      Search committee members will watch the Skype interviews (either live or recorded) and score responses to each question. All applicants will be asked the same questions. Committee members will submit their total score for each applicant by the morning of Monday, April 22.

      The search committee will have our next in-person committee meeting at 5:15pm on Monday, April 22 in the Superior Dome conference room to discuss the scoring summary and decide how many applicants to recommend bringing on-campus for final interviews.

      We hope to have on-campus interviews during the week of April 29-May 3 so current members of the men's basketball team can meet with the finalists.

      Here is a brief summary of the 16 that were selected for Skype interviews:

      2 NCAA DII head coaches5 NCAA DII associate/assistant coaches6 NCAA DI assistant coaches (2 of these have also previously been DII head coaches)2 junior college head coaches

      The committee feels that the pool of applicants is very strong.
