Two more mid-major coaches resigned late this week: Morehead State's Jay Sorg and William & Mary's Frank Leoni.
Sorg led the Eagles to a 100-156-1 record in five seasons, including a 28-27 campaign this spring. Morehead State reached the Ohio Valley Conference tournament in 2009 and 2012 but did not make a regional.
"I feel like I am leaving the program in a good place," Sorg said in a release. "The future is very promising. Many great things have been accomplished. The program has improved every year with the exception of one. We are close to 90 RPI spots better than when we started. We have also seen several players break single-season and career records over the past five years."
The Tribe went 196-178 in seven seasons under Leoni. Ten former William & Mary players signed professional contracts under Leoni, but he could not guide the Tribe to regionals. One possible candidate to replace Leoni might be Nate Goulet, who won the Colonial Athletic Association coach of the year award after leading Old Dominion to the CAA championship game as the interim head coach in 2011. But the Monarchs elected to hire Chris Finwood as head coach after that season.
Another name to keep in mind for the William & Mary job is Kansas State associate head coach John Szefc, a native Northeasterner who guided Marist to three regionals during his tenure from 1996-2002. Since then, Szefc has done fantastic work as an assistant at Louisiana-Lafayette, Kansas and Kansas State.
