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 O??Donnell, who is now the head coach of the Finlandia men??s basketball team.
Negaunee school board president Greg Toutant says Waterman??s hire came naturally for the Miners.
??He fit all the requirements,?? Toutant said. ??He brings a positive attitude to the classroom, good skills to the court?| and has a strong track record.??
Waterman will meet the team later this week.
