Reports: Bowling Green to hire former player, Miami assistant as new head coach

According to multiple reports there will be one less opening on the coaching carousel, with Bowling Green set to fill its head coaching vacancy.

Michael Huger, currently an assistant on Jim Larrañaga’s staff at Miami, is expected to be named the new head coach later this week. Huger is certainly familiar with the Bowling Green program, as he’s an alumnus of the school and played for Larrañaga from 1989-93.

Huger will replace Chris Jans, who was fired after one season for his actions at a Bowling Green bar. According to Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com Huger’s contract is expected to be a six-year deal.

Bowling Green won 21 games in 2014-15, but Huger will have to account for the loss of three of the team’s top four scorers in Richaun Holmes, Jehvon Clarke and Anthony Henderson ahead of the 2015-16 campaign. As of right now, guard Zach Denny (9.7 ppg) would be the team’s leading returning scorer.
