Johnston Candidate for Golden Gophers Women Basketball Head Coach

Aaron Johnston


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minneapolis Star Tribune, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, says Minnesota has narrowed its search for a women’s basketball coach to three candidates, including South Dakota State’s Aaron Johnston. The other frontrunners are reportedly Wichita State coach Jody Adams and Notre Dame assistant Niele Ivey.  Golden Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague told the Star Tribune on Tuesday that he had not personally contacted these candidates.   Minnesota is attempting to replace Pam Borton, who was fired after 12 seasons. The Gophers’ season ended last Thursday, at the hands of Johnston’s Jacks.
