Gamble considering leaving Prairie Stars for Providence

By all indications, University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars men’s basketball coach Kevin Gamble is leaving the school to join the staff at NCAA Division I Providence College in Rhode Island.

“We are talking,” said Gamble in a telephone interview from the Boston area on Wednesday. “There’s nothing set in stone.”

The head coach at Providence is Keno Davis, the son of Tom Davis, Gamble’s college coach at the University of Iowa.

Gamble is in discussion with Providence.

“There’s only one position open,” he said. “The position is (coordinator of) player development. It’s like a fourth assistant.”

Gamble's comments were featured in a May 27, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
