Engen Leaves as Northland Basketball Coach

Ashland, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Stu Engen is done as the head men's basketball coach and assistant athletics director at Northland College after just more than a month on the job, leaving to pursue other opportunities.

Engen was hired April 23 after a national candidate search, but the school announced Friday he has resigned to pursue an athletics director job at a North Dakota technical college.

"I've assured [the team] we are already moving quickly and with great care to identify and hire a new coach who is also well qualified to lead our men's basketball program," Northland College athletics director Bill Wilson said. "Northland is very fortunate to have attracted a pool of over 162 candidates and we still have a number of very well qualified coaches who were of great interest to the hiring committee in our initial selection process."
