Shane Burcar primed to lead Northern Arizona

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) Northern Arizona could have been in a tough spot when basketball coach Jack Murphy opted in June to leave the program to become the associate head coach at his alma mater.

If coaches leave, it's usually around the Final Four. By June, the coaching carousel is usually done turning, so Murphy's timing could have set the Lumberjacks back in what was expected to be a rebound season.

Turns out, the school had the perfect person to take the reins and not miss a beat.
