According to the Des Moises Register (I can’t remember if you put that in italics or underline it or what), Rob Ash informed his players today that he will be accepting the head coach position at Montana State. Ash has been head coach at Drake for 18 seasons, compiling a 125-63 record during his time there. He was impressive in his public forum, and it is pure speculation on who was truly the first pick of the AD, but with Van Diest and Lennon both withdrawing for whatever reasons, Ash was the frontrunner. We shall see how he does with scholarships.
