New Coach For The Dutch | Schools
Central College welcomes a familiar face back to the court. Marko Marinkovich has been named the Dutch’s assistant men’s basketball coach
Marinkovich lettered in the 09-10 season where he led the Dutch to their first Iowa Conference championship in 15 years. He served as a student coach for the 10-11 season before graduating in 2011.
“What Marko brings to the program is number one, knowledge of Central basketball,” first-year coach Craig Douma said. “He spent three years as a player, was a student coach and his brother is on the team now. He understands what college basketball is about.
“Number two, Marko is young and excited about coaching. He wanted to get involved and jump right in and this is a great opportunity to get his feet wet.”
Marinkovich will work with Central’s junior varsity program.
The Dutch season begins November 15 when they host Monmouth College.
