Whew. It looks like Wake Forest has found its man. Good thing nobody knew about this prior to today. This coaching search was fairly laughable. Wake better hope Bzdelik wins in a hurry or things with the fan base could get ugly (or uglier I guess).
Wake Forest has hired Colorado’s Jeff Bzdelik as the Demon Deacons’ new men’s basketball coach, the university announced Wednesday.
Bzdelik spent 2 1/2 seasons coaching the NBA’s Denver Nuggets and most recently went 36-58 in three seasons at Colorado.
His hiring comes a week after Wake Forest fired Dino Gaudio because of what athletic director Ron Wellman described as a pattern of late-season fades.
Wake Forest focused its search on Bzdelik for most of the week that the job was open. Over the weekend, he emerged as the only publicly known candidate, and he issued a statement Sunday acknowledging that he would speak to school officials about the opening. Bohn said he has been monitoring the Demon Deacons’ pursuit of his coach intently over the past few days.
