    I must be missing something here. Nowhere in the above cited article was there a mention of Bellman going to VCU. I can't imagine VCU hiring an assistant coach before the head coach is hired. Head coaches bring in their own assistants.

    It looks like the article was updated to remove the part about him becoming as assistant at VCU. When I came across it originally it said he took a position at VCU like I have quoted.

    Why would want to contaminate our team and our new coach (but it would be fun to steal from ODU!).

    Well we did end up stealing from the real ODU after all!

    Coach Nikita Lowry-Dawkins was recruiting co-ordinator for Wendy Larry at ODU for several years until Larry resigned in 2011. Coach Stollings hired her as an assistant.

    I recently met Coach Nikita Lowry-Dawkins. She is a delightful person. The fact that she was recruiting coordinator for ODU makes her a great asset for VCU. With our new head coach and Coach Nikita, we should be at the top of A-10 for many years.

    Why isn't Bellman listed on the VCU Athletics website? I see from Twitter that Coach has hired a DOBO.

    I answered my own question.. from LadySwish (ladyswish.blogspot.com)

    *Nate Bellman, who resigned his head coaching position at Ohio Dominican in June to be an assistant to Stollings, was unable to make the move to Virginia due to family medical issue.
