Source: Kest to be named coach

In two hours, the athletic department will name Jodi Kest as its new women's basketball coach, a source told me this morning.



If true, Akron will get one of the nation's elite defensive coaches. In two years at Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Kest has a record of 57-28.


Maybe the reason Kest comes to Akron is her local ties. She coached at Gannon University in Erie, Pa. and played at Slippery Rock University, which also is in Pennsylvania.


UPDATE: The Plain Dealer's Elton Alexander also is hearing Kest is the choice.
