NEW: RIC Launches Coaching Search to Replace Bob Walsh

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

 

RIC has launched a national coaching search to replace Bob Walsh as men's basketball coach, RIC Athletic Director Donald Tencher tells GoLocalProv.

Tencher said RIC would put together a pool of candidates and had already received some applications for the job. Assistant coach Mike Romano is the interim head coach for the Anchormen, and Tencher said in-house candidacies would be considered depending on the pool of outside candidates.

“I’ve heard some names that are probably going to apply,” Tencher said. “They’re very qualified candidates.”

Tencher said expectations will be high for the next head coach at RIC. The new coach will have big shoes to fill but a rock solid foundation left behind.

The Anchormen have qualified for 8 consecutive NCAA Tournaments. While Tencher was sad to see Walsh go, he recognized that the time was right and Walsh was ready for a new challenge at Division 1 Maine.

“Bob did a terrific job for us,” said Tencher. “He deserves a shot at this.”

Tencher was referencing Walsh’s jump to the Division 1 ranks, a jump that several Little East coaches have made over the years.

“They need to give him the resources,” Tencher said, when asked what it would take for Walsh to have success at the next level. “I actually talked to their AD and told him the same thing.”

Tencher said he would consult with Walsh before hiring a new coach, just as Walsh consulted with him before accepting the Maine job. Tencher also said there is no set timetable for hiring a new coach.
