NSU's loss, McNeese's gain

You just knew Northwestern State's NCAA Tournament run (OK, win over I0wa) was going to land someone a job. It eventually did on Tuesday when longtime (OK, seven years) Demons assistant Dave Simmons was named head coach at McNeese State.

Simmons certainly played a key role in the Demons' success under Mike McConathy. And now he will be a rival in the same league as NSU.

But to McConathy's credit, he is happy for Simmons' succesful job interview at McNeese even though McConathy's own job got a lot tougher. Not only does he have to face Simmons, but now he has to replace him.

It's the cost of success.
