St. Vincent College is expected to name a new football coach this week. The coach will replace Bob Colbert, who was not rehired after the season.

The finalists for the job are St. Vincent defensive coordinator John Thompson, Thomas More defensive line coach Chris Norwell and John Carroll offensive coordinator/associate head coach Ron Dolciato.

Since St. Vincent reinstated the football program, the Bearcats had one winning season under Colbert and are riding a 21-game losing streak.

When St. Vincent defeated Penn State Fayette, 86-56, on Jan. 2, the Bearcats were playing a team that showed up with only five players. The fifth player arrived 10 minutes before the game.

According to St. Vincent sports information director Jeff Zidek, the Penn State Fayette coach forgot to remind his players there was a game, and many of the players out of the area couldn't get back in time.

Dillon Stith had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Bearcats, and Isaac Turner added 18.

St. Vincent forced 25 turnovers and committed six.

The Bearcats resumed Presidents Athletic Conference action Saturday by defeating Grove City, 73-62.

St. Vincent (10-2, 3-0) raced to a 12-0 lead. It has won six straight games.

Turner scored 20 points, and Stith had 17 points and 14 rebounds.

St. Vincent will be at Bethany College on Saturday and at Geneva on Jan. 15.
