Reigning NAIA national champion Dalton State College has hired Hunter Hageman as an assistant basketball coach, replacing Tony Ingle Jr. on the staff headed by Tony Ingle Sr. A Georgia Board of Regents nepotism policy wouldn't allow Ingle Jr. to remain a paid assistant, so he now is an assistant at Coahulla Creek High School. Hageman, a sports management graduate of the University of Kansas who played two years at Friends University in Wichita, comes to the Roadrunners from the National Association of Basketball Coaches office in Kansas City. He's 24. "I have interviewed 10 candidates for this position," Ingle Sr. said in a school release. "Hunter comes highly recommended from Reggie Minton, the executive director of the NABC, and also from Lennie Acuff, my former assistant coach and now the head coach at the University of Alabama in Birmingham." Acuff is a member of the NABC board.
