WEST COAST CONFERENCE, GONZAGA
There was some big news yesterday in the Bay Area, with the dean of WCC coach, Dick Davey, announcing he will step down at Santa Clara at the end of the season.
Davey has been the Santa Clara head coach for 15 years and was an assistant at the school for the 15 years prior.
The San Jose Mercury News has this story and the retirement (that ran with this graphic), along with a column by Tim Kawakami speculating the Broncos want Mike Montgomery, the former Stanford and Golden State Warriors coach. The other names he mentions include San Francisco native Steve Lavin and Santa Clara alum Kurt Rambis.
The San Francisco Chronicle has this story, with Montgomery’s name mentioned as well.
• The Gonzaga women lost their first WCC game of the season, 70-56 at Pepperdine.
