The Sacramento Kings have confirmed that long-time NBA assistant Mike Malone will become their new head coach this afternoon.

The move had been on the rumor mill for weeks.

The 42-year-old Malone, the son of former NBA coach Brendan Malone, has a wealth of experience.

He has been an assistant on the college level with Providence College, Virginia and Manhattan College. In the NBA, he has been an assistant with the New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, New Orleans and Golden State.

Jankowski chooses Providence over NHL

 

Mark Jankowski, who was the first high-school hockey player selected at the 2012 NHL Draft, has decided to attend Providence College in the fall and play for the Friars.

The 17-year-old center was picked in by the Calgary Flames with the 21st overall selection.

The Hockey East Conference is very strong. Its member’s include: Boston College, Boston University, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Massachusetts-Lowell, Merrimack, New Hampshire, Northeastern University, Providence College and Vermont.

The league just got stronger with the addition of Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish are leaving the lame-duck Central Collegiate Hockey Association for Hockey East beginning with the 2013-14 season. The program will get much-needed national exposure with a TV deal with NBC.

NBC, which has been airing Notre Dame football games for more than twenty years, will televise Irish hockey, and will also add the other Hockey East teams as needed.

Details of the TV deal are not completed.

Notre Dame, which has been a member of the CCHA since 1992, will become the 11th member of Hockey East.

Tim Welsh leaves ESPNU to take head coaching reins at Hofstra

compiled from staff and wire reports

Hofstra University has confirmed that it has hired Tim Welsh to be its men’s basketball coach.

The former coach at Providence College and Iona College has spent the past two years as a commentator for ESPNU.

Welsh takes over for Tom Pecora, who took the job at Fordham last week.  Pecora had a record of 155-126 in nine years at Hofstra, with three straight NIT appearances from 2005-2007.

Hofstra lost in the second round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. The Pride finshed this past season at 19-15. Hofstra joined the CAA in 2001, and eventhough it has enjoyed success on the basketball court, the administration wants “The Big Dance”.  The Pride haven’t been able to reach the NCAA tournament since becoming a member in the tough CAA.

Tim Welsh spent 10 seasons at Providence, leading the Friars to the NCAA tournament in 2001 and 2004.  His record was 160-143.  At Iona, he compiled a 70-22 record, with one NCAA and two NIT appearances.
