Good friend David Larkins provides an update on the Brandon coaching situation including a piece that he wrote for the Brandon Sun. Still no official word on who was short-listed or when the decision will be made however Larkins does a nice job summarizing the candidates and uncovering who did not make the short list. And then there were.... four ?
