Mitch Henderson hired as Princeton head coach


Henderson, who has been an assistant at Northwestern for all 11 years of the Bill Carmody era, has taken the head coaching at Princeton, per Fox Sports' Jeff Goodman. Logical move for Henderson, who played under Pete Carrill and Carmody at Princeton, graduating in 1998. The bad news here is Henderson was apparently leading the recruiting of 2011 center John Cannon, hopefully this doesn't hurt NU's chances of landing a much-needed big man.
