Jacksonville courts IPFW’s Jasick
IPFW men’s basketball coach Tony Jasick apparently has a suitor.
On the heels of reports that Jasick had met with officials from Jacksonville University about its vacant head coaching job Saturday came a tweet from Jeff Goodman of ESPN that sources had told ESPN that Jasick was considered the front runner for the job.
Jacksonville went 12-18 and finished seventh in the Atlantic Sun Conference under coach Cliff Warren, who was fired in mid-March.
At IPFW this year, Jasick coached the Mastodons to a record 25 wins, the school’s first Division I postseason appearance and its first postseason victory.
And he’s not unfamiliar with Florida. IPFW assistant coach Jon Coffman, a former assistant at Stetson in the Sunshine State, was instrumental in luring Pierre Bland, Steve Forbes and leading scorer Luis Jacobo to IPFW from Florida.
