MIAMI — In a seamless transition, Dustin Grover has stepped down as men’s basketball coach at Northeastern A&M College and longtime assistant Jeremy Jackson is his replacement.
Both moves were announced at a press confrerence Friday, April 20, at the NEO Field House.
“That’s what we wanted it to be for these guys returning, a smooth transition,” Jackson said. “We don’t want too much change at once. We are going to go out and do great things next year.”
Jackson was an assistant to Grover for the past nine years.
Grover, who was 249-176 in 13 seasons as the Norse coach, will become assistant vice president of academic affairs at NEO.
“I think he was the right choice,” athletic director Dale Patterson said. “When you can hire someone from within, you have a better chance at success — if you have the right person. We think we have the right person in Jeremy Jackson.”
