Purdue Basketball is back!

NCAA Basketball: Green Bay at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome home, Linc Darner! The form Boilermaker guard has come back to Purdue as coach of the Green Bay Phoenix. Darner won the 2015 Division II National Championship at Florida Southern and is now in his fifth season as a Division I head coach with Green Bay. He also used to coach at nearby St. Joseph’s College, so seeing him back in Mackey Arena for this year’s opener is great.
