For those puzzled by the rumored candidacy of Dan Fife for the vacant U-M basketball assistant coaching job, perhaps an "e" got lost in translation.
An item in the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel claims that Dane Fife--son of Dan Fife and younger brother of Dugan Fife--is the candidate:
Several Web sites related to athletics at the University of Michigan are reporting that [Dane] Fife is a candidate for one of two assistant coaching positions for the Wolverine program.
“I have no comment regarding any coaching job other than the one that I have,” Fife said Sunday.
Dane Fife is the head coach at IPFW:
In his five seasons guiding IPFW, he has led the Mastodons to 10, 12, 13, 13 and 16 victories, which is the most in school history at the Division I level.
Some more background on him can be found in this New York Times article. (It's an "old" article--from 2006--but still interesting.)
