Men's basketball assistant coaches injured in accident

There was a traffic accident Sept. 22 involving NIC men's basketball coaches early Thursday morning while they were traveling to Portland on a recruiting trip. Two men were transported to Providence Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, where they are currently in serious but stable condition.

From President Rick MacLennan: "North Idaho College and the entire Athletics Department are deeply saddened by this tragic accident. The Cardinal community of students, employees and athletes are sending our thoughts to the assistant coaches who were injured in this accident, and their families, as they begin the difficult road ahead to recovery. We will do anything we can to support them along the way."

A Go Fund Me account has been established to support the men's basketball assistant coaches injured in yesterday's accident.
