Ohio Sports Time takes a look at sports news at Ohio colleges

Wright State announced yesterday that Brad Brownell has been named their new head men's basketball coach. Brownell comes to WSU from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington where he led UNC-Wilmington to an 83-40 record and two NCAA appearances in four seasons.

Cleveland State is looking for a new head coach as Mike Garland resigned yesterday. I'm not sure if he's on their radar or not, but why not take a look at Gary Waters. Waters, IMO, would be about as good a hire as any mid-major could make as he is credited with starting the Kent State run of 8 consecutive 20-win seasons. If I were an AD at CSU or any other mid-major program in the region I would be bringing Waters in right away and figuring out a way to afford his salary.

Tim O'Shea, the head coach of the Ohio Bobcats, was expected to interview with Seton Hall Athletic Director for their open coaching position yesterday.

While Ball State is not an Ohio school, they do regularly compete against 6 Ohio schools. Recent speculation has been that MAC Freshman of the Year Maurice Acker, a guard at Ball State, is looking transfer out of the program. ChicagoHoops.com reports that Acker is transferring to Marquette, and HoopFactor.com reports that Acker has been released from his scholarship at Ball State to play in the Big East for Marquette.

HoopFactor.com is also reporting that Ohio State assistant John Groce is at the top of Duquesne's list to replace Danny Nee. Nee's no stranger to the state of Ohio as he won the MAC Coach of the Year award coaching the Ohio Bobcats back in 1983 and 1985.
