Don't expect a new basketball coach to be named at McNeese State in the next couple of days.
Athletics Director Sonny Watkins said Tuesday that the university has decided against making an emergency hire that would have allowed the school to make a rapid hire on an interim basis.
McNeese announced July 28 that it would not renew the contract of former head coach Tic Price for the upcoming season. That announcement came 25 days before the start of the fall semester, leaving McNeese little time to hire a coach before the start of school.
"We decided we had enough time to do a full search and still have a new coach in time for the start of school," Watkins said. "We will move quickly, but we can still do the full search."
A full search starts with the position being advertised — it was on both McNeese's Web site and a higher education Web site on Monday — then with a committee being formed, interviews and a final hire.
Watkins said a committee will be formed "in the next four or five days" and will go through applications quickly. He said a coach could be named sometime next week.
"It's important that the student-athletes have leadership and direction," Watkins said. "To have that, we need to have a head coach in place for the start of school."
Meanwhile, one of the leading candidates for the job visited Lake Charles on Sunday.
Northwestern State assistant coach Dave Simmons was in town to meet with university officials. The former McNeese assistant coach expressed interest in the job on Saturday.
Watkins said he expects many more applications.
"I expect this will get a lot of interest," he said.

Former Cleveland State coach Mike Garland has sued the university, contending that athletic director Lee Reed fired him then announced that he had resigned.
Garland sued in the Ohio Court of Claims on Friday in Columbus seeking the salary and benefits from the two years left on his contract.
Garland, whose salary was $130,000, went 23-60, including 10-18 last season.
According to the lawsuit, Reed pressured Garland to resign, finally informing him March 30 that he was being terminated. Reed then reassigned him to the newly created position of special assistant to the athletic director.
The suit says Reed made the appointment with the hope that Garland would resign from the new position.
A letter from a Cleveland state lawyer to Garland's attorney says Garland was supposed to report to Reed's office by July 5. Reed said that Garland never showed up and does not work for the university. Reed declined to comment further.
"The contract with Mr. Garland gave us the right to reassign," said Rob Wolff, an attorney representing Cleveland State. "We did and he opted not to accept the new position, which would have maintained his level of compensation."

Troy University head coach Larry Blakeney mentioned at the Sun Belt Conference football media days gathering this week that he hoped the league would bring another team into the conference, giving it nine Division I-A-playing teams, which would give each team eight league games per year.Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Commissioner Wright Waters admitted nine would be "the perfect number for scheduling," allowing four home and four road games each season.
Some within the conference believe the reality of a nine-team Sun Belt football roster may happen soon -- and the search won't have to take place outside the conference. Western Kentucky, already a Sun Belt member but playing a I-AA schedule, is believed to be considering a move up to I-A membership.
Ben Howland was so ecstatic that, according to Kevin Love, the UCLA coach was near tears.Friday, July 21, 2006
Howland has had plenty of big-time coaching experiences, notably reaching the national title game last April before losing to Florida. Still, Howland has never signed a player rated as high as Love.
Tuesday, Howland's four-year recruitment of the best big man in the class of 2007 paid off when the 6-9 Love announced he would go to UCLA, choosing the Bruins over North Carolina.
"He recruited me the longest, since eighth grade when he first got the job, and he ended up with me," said Love, who will return to his native Oregon (he's from Lake Oswego) during Pac-10 play in 2007-08. "When I told him he almost started crying he was so happy."
Duke University has hired John Danowski from Hofstra to coach its embattled men's lacrosse team, the new coach said Friday.Thursday, July 20, 2006
Danowski, whose son Matt is a Duke senior and All-America attackman for the Blue Devils, told The Associated Press that he will replace Mike Pressler, who resigned soon after a woman told police she was raped by three men at a March team party where she was hired to perform as an exotic dancer.

In recent weeks we've seen athletes punished over information they have revealed on such social networking sites as MySpace and FaceBook. More recently, the University of Kentucky has reported Violations in regards to it's fans postings on a recruits MySpace page.
As the ease of technology infiltrates society, and with the blurring of the line between "media" and "reader", we see more and more instances when athletes are making very public comments on public forums.
Below you will find an exchange between Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and fans of the New York Yankees, taking place on a New York Yankees fansite. Shilling's comments are those posted under the username "gehrig38":
Curt Schilling on NY Yankees Fan Message Board
I'd like to know what people's thoughts are about such public exchanges...

Winston-Salem State has been accepted into the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
A news conference is scheduled today in Virginia Beach, Va., where the conference has its headquarters, to announce the move.
“We are elated to welcome Winston-Salem into the MEAC family,” commissioner Dennis Thomas said Wednesday. “Obviously, we think that WSSU is an outstanding academic institution with an excellent athletics program.”
Winston-Salem State is jumping to Division I and leaving the Division II Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association after more than 50 years.
The Rams will be in transition for four years and won’t be eligible for any MEAC championships until 2010-11.
“Our goal is to be become a strong and viable member of the MEAC,” athletic director Chico Caldwell said.
Winston-Salem State will become the 12th member of the MEAC, which is expanding for the first time since inviting Norfolk State in 1997.
Kentucky self-reported a secondary NCAA violation because of postings on a potential recruit's MySpace.com Web site, apparently by fans.Wednesday, July 19, 2006
The postings on the site of West Virginia high school basketball star Patrick Patterson, who just completed his junior year at Huntington High School, tried to entice him to attend Kentucky, WLEX-TV in Lexington reported. "Fans are not allowed to interact with recruitable student athletes," Kentucky athletics spokesman Scott Stricklin said Wednesday. "We had to report that to the NCAA."
Patterson, a 6-foot-8 center, was named the West Virginia Player of the Year this year and led Huntington High to its second straight state title, compiling 23 points, 11 rebounds and 6 blocked shots in the championship game. For the regular season, he averaged 14.5 points, 11 rebounds and 4.4 blocks per game and has had interest from several Division I colleges.
Stricklin said when fans contact potential recruits, the school tries to educate them not do to that or it will hurt the school.
He said if that takes care of the problem, there would likely be no further action.
CSTV Networks, Inc. and Comcast are teaming up to launch The mtn. - MountainWest Sports Network, which will deliver to fans the full action and excitement of Mountain West Conference athletics.

A New Mexico State University football player who was set to be one of the Aggies starting middle linebackers this season has died.Friday, July 07, 2006
Shana Leaupepe, 21, died Friday in Long Beach, Calif., as a result of a drive-by shooting, NMSU head football coach Hal Mumme said Saturday.
Leaupepe was visiting family in California when he was killed, Mumme said.
"Shana was an outstanding young man, and we are shocked that this has happened," Mumme said in a news release. "Shana was a wonderful friend and teammate, and our hearts go out to his family. We've lost a special young man whose time at New Mexico State left a lasting mark on our coaches, players and staff."
Leaupepe was the leading tackler in 2004 for the Oilers of West Los Angeles College. With 56 tackles, he led his team to a 7-3 mark and a conference championship. In his two years at the college, he tallied more than 100 tackles and was named an all-Conference selection twice.
In high school, Leaupepe played middle linebacker for the Samoana High School Sharks in the Utulei Village of American Samoa. In 2003, he helped his team to an 8-2 record and a second place finish in the conference.
Leaupepe had planned to major in sociology at NMSU, according to the school's Web site.
Mumme said Leaupepe will be buried in American Samoa. The funeral date and time have not been set.
Erik Johnson, who was the top overall pick in last month's NHL draft, announced he will attend the University of Minnesota this fall.
Johnson and his family said Friday that the 18-year-old will enroll in the university rather than joining the St. Louis Blues for the upcoming season.
The Blues retain their rights to Johnson and were part of the discussions as he made his decision.
Johnson is a defenseman who spent the last two seasons with the U.S. National development team. He grew up in Bloomington and attended Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield.
He was just the fifth American to be chosen first overall in the draft.
Pat Fitzgerald, a former All-American linebacker at Northwestern, was hired Friday as the Wildcats' coach and became the youngest head coach in Division I-A. He replaced Randy Walker, who died last week.Wednesday, July 05, 2006
The 31-year-old Fitzgerald was a linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator under Walker. His appointment came one day after he spoke at a memorial service for Walker.
Fitzgerald starred at linebacker for the 1995 Northwestern team that won the Big Ten and went to the Rose Bowl, a game he missed with a broken leg. He also played the next season when the Wildcats made it to the Citrus Bowl.
Athletic director Mark Murphy said that when he was negotiating with Walker for a contract extension earlier this year, Walker told him Fitzgerald would be his choice as successor.(More...)

The tears are starting to well in Bob Huggins eyes. It appears OJ Mayo is one step closer to signing with USC and coach Tim Floyd. While Mayo's NCAA stop isn't expecting to be long, this would be a huge boost to the USC basketball program.Sunday, July 02, 2006
Less than two weeks after eliminating the jobs of five athletic department staff members, the University of Nebraska at Omaha announced that it would study the possibility of moving from NCAA Division II to Division I.Saturday, July 01, 2006
"It's going to be a summer project," Chancellor Nancy Belck said. "We will be calling together all the coaches, administrative heads and staff, and there will be a series of questions for them to respond to, particularly considering the events of the last week regarding the (North Central Conference)."
North Dakota last week announced its intention to elevate its program to Division I. Shortly after that, South Dakota said it would look into a possible move to Division I.
"That changed the picture," Belck said. "A lot of things clicked in at that point."
Belck, who previously said she wants to remain in Division II, said South Dakota's position made it critical to examine UNO's options.More...
