Negaunee has hired Dan Waterman as its new boys varsity basketball coach.
Waterman comes to Negaunee from Munising. In 2012, he led the Mustangs to their first district title since 1957. He also led the team to the Class D regional semifinals this past season.
He replaces Mike Oâ??Donnell, who is now the head coach of the Finlandia menâ??s basketball team.
Negaunee school board president Greg Toutant says Watermanâ??s hire came naturally for the Miners.
â??He fit all the requirements,â?? Toutant said. â??He brings a positive attitude to the classroom, good skills to the courtâ?| and has a strong track record.â??
Waterman will meet the team later this week.
