Coaching Carousel: Is Anyone Coaching at Mississippi Valley State?

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

In a weird situation, it is unclear who is running the show at Mississippi Valley State.

Does Mississippi Valley State have a head basketball coach? In short, I don't know. A lot of media outlets thought that Chico Potts would be let go as the Delta Devils' head man after the season but no announcement ever came from MVSU.

Several sources, including HoopDirt.com have stated that Potts has been ousted at MVSU and that assistant Marcus Thomas is currently running the program. No official announcement of any sort has been made and Potts remains the head man on the MVSU website. HoopDirt speculated that a new coach will not be officially hired until the fiscal year switches over in July.

If Potts is indeed out at Mississippi Valley State then he'll finish with a 14-46 mark in two years as the head coach and a 10-26 record in the SWAC.  The Delta Devils historically have had high turnover on their basketball squad but have recently signed three recruits, so they aren't just on auto pilot.

More news on this as news continues to be compiled.
