Furman's Nico Medved to Drake. Former Miles assistant at CSU.


Niko's Furman squad was definitely on the right trajectory. 


Furman averaged 11.67 wins/year in the 6 years before Niko took over.  In his 4 years with the program (so, a decade in all) they won 9, 11, 19, and now 23 wins (with the possibility of another W on the 29th when they play St. Peter's in the CIT semis.


He is a grad of Minnesota.  Wouldn't be surprised if his plan is to take over at Drake and build recruiting contacts into the Twin Cities area and then take over for Richard Pitino when he gets fired or moves on.


He's taking over a Drake program that, in the last 5 years, has won 16, 15, 9, 7, and 7 games respectively.  If he can reverse that trend and get them to the 16-20 win mark in 4 years or so, he'll be looking to take another major step forward in his coaching career.
