During his introductory news conference Thursday afternoon, NIU men's basketball coach Mark Montgomery said he would have his coaching staff finalized in a couple weeks.
It only took him a couple hours to get started.
Montgomery has hired Lou Dawkins to be an assistant coach with the Huskies, according to a report from GreatLakesHoops.com. Dawkins was formerly head coach of Michigan prep power Saginaw High. He resigned from that position Monday in order to "pursue career goals." In seven years at Saginaw, Dawkins won two state titles.
