Dickinson State is advertising for a head women’s basketball coach. But that hasn’t stopped Andre Goldberg from doing his job.
Goldberg, who coached the team this season on an interim basis after being hired in late July, said Wednesday he has reapplied for the position and has no intentions on leaving DSU after going 15-13 in his first season as head coach.
Because Goldberg was hired as an interim head coach, Dickinson State athletic director Roger Ternes said the school is required by law to re-open the position.
“It’s available for anyone to apply,” Ternes said. “(Goldberg) will be turning his information in this week.”
An advertisement for the position appeared in The Dickinson Press on Sunday and Wednesday.
Ternes said the university must also advertise for the head softball coach position once its season is over because Kristen Fleury was also hired on an interim basis.
“Basically, I just go through the process of it and everything and see from there,” Goldberg said.
While all that happens, business continues as usual for Goldberg.
He plans to have at least one recruit visit DSU this weekend and is waiting on letters of intent from at least two local players — New England guard Jordyn Bender and Harding County (S.D.) forward Devan Koch — who he says have verbally committed to play for the Blue Hawks.
