In the end, a D'Antoni gets the job.

Dan D'Antoni will be introduced as Marshall's new men's basketball coach Friday afternoon.

Since the resignation of Tom Herrion, it was Mike D'Antoni at the top of the MU wish list.

But when it became clear he was going to stick with the LA Lakers, Dan came into the mix.

Dan D'Antoni starred for the Herd in the late '60s as a point guard. He launched his coaching career at Marshall before enjoying great success at the high school level in Myrtle Beach. He recent coaching stints have been as an assistant to his brother in the NBA. D'Antoni has been on the bench with the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and LA Lakers.

The Friday news conference is set for 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, Marshall conducted its 14th spring football practice before Saturday's Green-White game.

Also, the Power opened a four-game set with the Hagerstown Suns.

Plus, Huntington battled Nitro in high school baseball and Cabell Midland met Hurricane in high school softball.
