Wow. He just moved back into Georgetown. I knew he'd been looking a upward moves, but this is definitely a step in a different direction. Definitely didn't see it coming, especially with the new clubhouse.

And Mel has confirmed it on FaceBook. Sounds like Central, although D3, has an excellent golf program.

His home course is probably a big step up, even with the new golf clubhouse at Mussatto.

Trivia fact: Mel spent many a day in Monmouth. Wyatt Earp was born in Monmouth and raised in Pella, IA. Small world.

Some people could probably make a strong case for a women's soccer coach too.

Furthermore, if the current acting AD makes these hires, we probably found our new AD.

Official press release from Central College. Coach Blasi said that his daily responsibilities in operating Western's golf course limited his ability to go on the road to recruit.

Veteran coach Blasi to lead Central men's golf program.
