Marshall assistant heading for Louisiana Tech


One of Marshall University's most engaging assistant football coaches will continue his veteran career at Louisiana Tech, according to the Huntington (WV) Herald-Dispatch.

George Darlington, a defensive assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for three seasons, has accepted the secondary coach position with the Bulldogs.

A Charleston, WV, native, Darlington was hired by then-Marshall coach Bobby Pruett following Darlington's 30-year tenure at Nebraska.

Missouri, Snyder reach settlement

The University of Missouri and Quin Snyder have reached a settlement which has resulted in Snyder resigning his duties as head coach of the school's basketball program.

Terms of the settlement will be announced later, according to the university's athletic web site.

Snyder had directed the Tigers program since taking over prior to the 1999-2000 season. In his time at Missouri, Snyder amassed a 126-91 overall record.

Associate Head Coach Melvin Watkins, former head coach and star player at Charlotte, will serve as acting head coach for the remainder of the 2005-06 season.

Mizzou topped Kansas State 74-71 on Sunday to stop a 6-game losing streak in its first game without Snyder, a former Duke player and assistant coach.
