Northern Illinois has reached an agreement to hire Michigan State associate head coach Mark Montgomery as its new head coach.

Montgomery spent the past 10 seasons at Michigan State after being an assistant coach at Central Michigan for four years. During his playing days at Michigan State, Montgomery finished third in school history in assists and steals.

He will replace Ricardo Patton, who was fired March 8 after four seasons with the Huskies. Patton went 35-83 during his time at Northern Illinois.

A press conference will be held Thursday to announce the hiring.

The story was first reported by Chicago Breaking Sports.

I agree - Kick him off the site!  There should be a zero tolerance policy for this kind of thing.

Why is his post still showing up anyways.  How long will it take the webmaster to act on this????
