We know you’re tired of hearing our voices on the podcast, so we thought it would be a good idea to bring another voice into the mix.

Luckily, Northern Kentucky head coach John Brannen was kind enough to share some of his time for a brief interview. Some of the topics we discussed include:

  • The challenges of taking over a transition Division I program
  • How he approaches scheduling for the program
  • How NKU wound up in the tournament in its first year of eligibility
  • The growth of the NKU brand and fan support following the NCAA Tournament bid

It’s a quick listen, but coach Brannen sheds a lot of light on some of the behind the scenes stuff that goes on at a mid-major program. Give it a listen. As always, please subscribe and review us if you enjoy it.
