According to various sources, along with recent reports this morning, Mount Saint Mary’s is expected to hire Dan Engelstad as its next men’s basketball coach.
Engelstad is expected to replace Jamion Christian, who recently accepted the head coaching position at Siena College, per last week’s release from the school’s athletic department.
Since taking over the Southern Vermont College men’s basketball program five years ago, Engelstad has compiled an impressive record of 104-34. He guided the Mountaineers this past season to a 22-6 ledger, which included a trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament and a New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Tournament crown.
Prior to taking over the SVC men’s basketball team, Engelstad spent time as an assistant coach at Mount Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross. As noted in his bio on the SVC website, Engelstad was the youngest Division I coach during the 2007-08 season.
