Where are they now - Dean Keener

Nice article about his patience in getting a HC job with quotes from our own Coach Hewitt:

Keener, a 38-year-old Tallmadge native, served 16 years as an assistant basketball coach at seven colleges before being named head basketball coach at James Madison University in Virginia. Not everyone is that patient.

``That would have been tough,'' said Paul Hewitt, whom Keener coached under as an assistant for four years at Georgia Tech. ``I think that speaks to his intelligence level. I think it also says that people recognized his ability, giving him an opportunity right out of college.''
