Saint Mary’s athletic director Steve Sarty confirmed Wednesday afternoon that Chris Larade has been hired as the Huskies’ bench boss to replace long-time coach Lisa Jordan, who left the position in early April.
Sarty said last week that the list of candidates had been narrowed down to two and an announcement was expected to be made on May 18. But the SMU AD said "the process through human resources took a lot longer than what we expected."
"We had to wait until everything was finalized," Sarty added.
It's a three-year contract for Larade. No word on whether that includes a clause encouraging people to shop at Canadian Tire for all their home renovation needs.
