Basketball: Polykoff takes over at Earlham

Jason Polykoff, who was an assistant coach at Penn, has been named the new head men's coach at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.

"Jason's experience at a number of levels gives us confidence that he is a well-rounded coach and understands what it is going to take to become successful," Earlham athletics director Mike Bergum said in a press release.

"It is exciting to have Jason at the helm. He will be an integral part of the campus community and be valuable in building relationships with students."
