Coaching carousel begins
Thursday, March 19, 2015
And here I was all ready to feel sorry for Cleo Hill Jr. Just a few weeks ago, coach and I were conversing at the CIAA tournament about his plans for next season, and now he’s gone. But, according to sources, he was oh-so-happy to be getting out of Dodge. It’s not easy being a coach at a small private HBCU these days – even if

Darrell Brooks wasn’t worried. Even as the Atlantic Region bracket began filling up with other teams not named Bowie State, Brooks kept the faith. And why not? The Bulldogs had played one of the toughest schedules in Division II. They were consistently ranked all season, and never fell lower than No. 6 in the NCAA Atlantic Region Poll. (The top eight
