Prep boys hoops: Ishpeming boys basketball coaching decision on tap

ISHPEMING – A new Ishpeming High School boys varsity basketball coach could be named later this month.

IHS athletic director Terry Roberts said Wednesday a replacement for John Tiziani could be presented to the district board of education at its next scheduled meeting on June 17.

Tiziani resigned in April after three seasons at the Hematites’ helm. He compiled a 40-24 record.

“We’re still in the process of going through the applicants (for the position),” Roberts said, adding five people have applied for the job.

No individual interviews have been scheduled to date, he said.

A four-person committee, including Roberts, is reviewing the candidates.

The A.D. said a recommendation will be presented to school district Supt. Steven Piereson prior to the board’s consideration.
