Dayton looking to fill two job openings on men’s basketball staff

University posts job openings on its website this week


The University of Dayton has posted two job openings related to the men’s basketball team on its website this week.

Dayton is looking for an assistant men’s basketball coach with an expected start date of June 22. That job was posted Wednesday. UD has not announced the departure of a coach, though James Kane was reported to be in the mix for an open position at Iowa State.

» LOOKING BACK: Kane talks about joining Grant’s staff

Iowa State coach Steve Prohm told the Des Moines Register earlier this month Kane was a coach he would consider, though “There’s a process we have to go through, first.”

Before joining Dayton coach Anthony Grant’s staff in 2017, Kane spent six seasons at Murray State. He coached on Prohm’s staff for the first four of those seasons. Prohm took the Iowa State job in 2015.

Kane met Grant when he was a student at the University of Florida, and Grant hired Kane as a graduate assistant at Virginia Commonwealth in 2006.

Dayton also seeks a new strength and conditioning coach for the men’s basketball team, though it has not announced the departure of Casey Cathrall, who joined the program a year ago.
