I was looking up stuff on retired UOP basketball coach Bob Thomason for the purpose of nominating him for the UOP Hall of Fame, when I found out that he was the inaugural winner of the Hugh Durham Award for Mid-Major Coach of the Year in 2005. When I saw the list, I noticed that in 2015, the award was given to our very own Brian Katz. That was a bit of a surprise. SDHornet, our own resident guru of everything Hornet, noted this in his 2014-2015 season review, but I'd forgotten.
It's very cool to see valley schools getting recognition, and I hope to see Katz get it again next year, and that would be something because only Drake has won the award twice, and no one coach has won it more than once.
