Monson circles back to Cheney

Eagles hoops coach lived here in 1960s

CHENEY - It's taken several decades, but Dan Monson has come very much full circle.

On Friday, April 12 the former Gonzaga, Minnesota and Long Beach State coach was named Eastern Washington's 20th men's basketball coach. And on Monday, April 15, he returned to Cheney to meet with media, fans and boosters.

His connections run deep in the area and that was a strong selling point for EWU athletic director Tim Collins and the selection committee composed of a variety of school administrators.

"We matter to our region and we have a coach now this region matters just as much to him," Collins said.
