Robert Burke, the most recently former American assisant, also formerly a Georgetown assistant, has been named head coach of the Mount St. Mary's men's basketball team. There is a team meeting at 3:30 p.m., presumably with coach Burke. Details to follow later today.
First and foremost, you heard it here first. Before the school, any blog or sports Web site announced it.
Assistant coach Brion Dunlap, not Burke, met with the players in the locker room at 3:30 p.m. At approximately 5 p.m., Burke met the players for the first time. He informed them that he is hoping to keep Dunlap as his first assistant, but that is highly unlikely as Dunlap will probably reunite with Milan Brown at Holy Cross. Here is the MountAthletics.com release.
