NIC hires Watson

North Idaho College hired Hugh Watson to replace recently retired Rolly Williams as its men’s basketball coach.

Watson was selected over former Central Connecticut State coach Mark Adams, San Francisco assistant Bill Carr and NIC assistant Brian Hancock.

“I’m just so anxious to meet all the people and get around town,” said Watson, a former University of Idaho assistant. “But I gotta get some players.”

To that end, Watson is working the phones to overcome a late start. He is checking on the son of former Seattle Sonic Marvin Webster.

Watson has already landed his first recruit - his son, Gabe, an honorable mention all-state guard who played for his dad at Columbia (Tenn.) Central High.

Earlier this week, Watson was selected to coach a Tennessee high school all-star team that will play against Georgia in July. He expects to make contacts there as well.

Watson said he’ll meet with his current employer today to determine a date he can begin his NIC assignment.

Watson will reportedly make $46,000 a year, a salary equivalent to his current one.
