Ohio State basketball’s Jeff Boals has already had his name connected to numerous coaching searches. In fact, Sports Illustrated named him one of the assistants most ready to make the leap to head coach.
So it’s no surprise that, now that there is a vacancy at Marshall, Boals is being mentioned as a possible candidate there. Considering that Boals is a former Thundering Herd assistant (1999-2003), it is feasible that he would be considered to replaced Tom Herrion.
Earlier this year, Boals’ name was also brought up in conjunction with the Bowling Green job.
