Darner firing leads to roster shuffle

What the roster for the Green Bay men's basketball team looks like this fall is anybody's guess after the school's athletics department fired Linc Darner on Sunday.


Players have taken to Twitter to announce their plans in the days since the surprise announcement after Darner and his coaching staff put the final touches on its 2020 recruiting class. The Horizon League's reigning freshman of the year Amari Davis announced he would be sticking around after Josh Jefferson said he would weigh out his options in the transfer portal. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Scott Venci, Jiovanni Miles also joined Trevian Bell, Hunter Crist, and Manny Patterson in the transfer portal in the postseason, though those players made those intentions known before Sunday's news.


Venci also reports the incoming class for the Phoenix, including Southern Door's Ryan Claflin, are taking a wait and see approach before they decide to stay put or move on. The NCAA is mulling a plan that would allow revenue sports like basketball and football to begin voluntary summer workouts on June 1st.
