Winning almost 75 percent of your games will draw attention.
That’s what Jamestown College head men’s basketball coach Matt Murken has done and Minot State has noticed.
Murken, who is 46-16 in his two seasons leading the Jimmies, is one of three candidates for Minot State’s opening, which was created when Peter Stewart resigned last week.
Murken was not looking for another job, but had to listen when the NCAA Division II Beavers called.
“It’s a reflection of what we’ve been able to do here at Jamestown College,” Murken said. “When something like this happens it reminds you of the good things you have here and there are a lot of good things about Jamestown College.”
Murken, South Dakota Mines head coach Jason Henry, a Minot native and MSU alum, and Steve Keller, the head coach at University of Montana-Western, have been lined up to tour the MSU campus. Murken’s interview will be on Thursday.
