NDSU board says Darren Mueller has turned down Gophers before (remember Trashchel (my name for her) was NDSU Asst Coach when she went down to DInkytown.I mentioned this in the 2021 thread, but Sara G has expressed an interest in coming back in some capacity following the Olympics. In fact, she stated that it would be "a dream come true."
Other names being bandied about are Jessica Merchant, Darren Mueller and Katie Richardson, but that's all just speculation.
Bottom line is it's a very attractive job for obvious reasons and Coyle has done pretty well with his hires thus far.
Just have to have faith and let the process play out.
I'd love to see Darren at U of Minnesota, he would kill it, but he gets paid well at NDSU, goes to the Tourney every year and they've won some games and he controls the entire program up there.
