Niagara begins search for new men's hoops coach

Niagara begins search to replace Joe Mihalich


Niagara Gazette — Crowley also stated "everybody should know that Niagara did everything it could to make this work for Joe here at Niagara."

But the university could not match the facilities, resources, market size and compensation package that Hofstra will provide Mihalich.

The next Niagara coach will inherit a talented roster that won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular season championship and advanced to the NIT despite having the youngest rotation in the league. Guards Juan'ya Green and Antoine Mason became the first sophomore teammates to earn all-MAAC honors, and freshman forward T.J. Cline was selected to the all-rookie team.

Crowley said he was not concerned about players transferring out of the program now that the coach who recruited them has departed, and that he expects the next coach to build his system around the players currently in place.

Players were not made available to comment.

Crowley said he expects Mihalich's assistants to join him at Hofstra.
