Falcons add asst. coach
Mark Downey has accepted an assistant men’s basketball coaching position at Bowling Green State University according to a published report in the Charleston (W.Va.) Daily Mail.
Downey worked with new BG head coach Chris Jans for one year at Independence College.
“He’s like a mentor to me,” Downey told the newspaper about Jans. “We kept in contact and became really good friends. It was an honor when he called and offered me the job. He’s seen a lot of places, met a lot of people and has an extensive Rolodex. I really trust him, he’s a good coach and he’s going to do really well.”
This will mark Downey’s third time in Division I. He served as an assistant coach at New Orleans for five seasons and was the director of operations at Marshall for two seasons.
Most recently he was the head coach at West Alabama.
“I always thought that if I’d get the chance I’d go back to the Division I level, and said I would go back with someone I knew and someone I trusted,” Downey told the newspaper.
