Northwestern assistant coach Mitch Henderson has been named the new head coach at Princeton University. He replaces Sydney Johnson who left the Tigers for a job with Fairfield earlier this spring.
Congrats to Mitch Henderson
Henderson was a star at Princeton during his playing days and has spent the past 11 seasons learning under Bill Carmody.
"I am pleased to announce that Mitch, one of Princeton's terrific point guards, will succeed his teammate, Sydney Johnson, as the head coach of Princeton basketball," Princeton athletic director Gary Walters said in a statement. "Mitch has developed and polished his craft at Northwestern, a Big Ten university that is similar in philosophy with its commitment to the student-athlete - with emphasis on both sides of that hyphen."
This might have some recruiting implications for Northwestern moving forward, but for now let's congratulate Henderson on the next step in his career.
