I have now heard from multiple sources that DII Lander University will hire Drew Richards as their new Head Basketball Coach. Richards has been the Associate Head Coach at UNC Pembroke for the past five seasons. His squad got knocked out of the NCAA DII Tournament last night, and finished the season with a 21-10 record.
The two other finalists for the position were Furman assistant Tyler Murray, and Queens University of Charlotte associate head coach Grant Leonard.
The official announcement is expected tomorrow.
