Hoops: Cliff Warren to JU

The Florida Times-Union out of Jacksonville is reporting that Cliff Warren will be the next head basketball coach at Jacksonville U - story here. He breaks down another color barrier, becomeing the first African-American coach at that school.

Mixed emotions here. Coach Warren seemed to be quite a stabilizing force, working with players, taking pride in personal development of our big men, spent a lot of time in the film room with Jarrett Jack. He will be missed. On the other side, it is a good sign when your head coach is "producing" the kind of coaches that are valued as head coaches elsewhere. That is #2 for Coach Hewitt, with Dean Keener heading up the James Madison program.

Coach Warren, congrats!!!! You will be missed, and you'll always be a YellowJacket!!!
