Former Oregon Duck basketball player and current Northwest Christian University head basketball coach Luke Jackson is close to being named the head coach at Portland State, multiple sources have told "This is going to get done very soon," said one source familiar with the hiring process at Portland State but asked to not be quoted. "It's a home-run hire." Jackson has had multiple interviews with Portland State's athletic department and has recently gone through his third interview in Phoenix while Jackson was in town to watch Oregon play in last Saturday's game against North Carolina in the Final Four. In four seasons at NCU, Jackson has a record of 88-38 and has made the NAIA Division II Men's Basketball National Championship three out of four seasons.
