Northern Colorado promotes Smiley as head basketball coach

GREELEY, Colorado (AP) Steve Smiley has been promoted to head men's basketball coach at Northern Colorado, replacing Jeff Lindor, who took over at the University of Wyoming.

Athletic director Darren Dunn announced the promotion Thursday night about 48 hours after naming Smiley the interim head coach following Lindor's departure.

The school plans a virtual press conference on Friday to introduce the 20th head coach in the program's history.

Lindor went 80-50 in four seasons at Northern Colorado, including three consecutive 20-plus win seasons. Smily joined Lindor's staff in May of 2016.
