DIII DIRT: Western Connecticut set to announce alum as new Head Basketball Coach

I can confirm that Western Connecticut will name Guy Rancourt as their new head basketball coach. The 1997 WestConn grad has spent the past ten seasons as the head coach at Lycoming College (PA) where he has compiled a 176-89 record. During his tenure, Rancourt led the Warriors to the NCAA Tournament three times, won two MAC Commonwealth title, and appeared in six MAC Commonwealth title games. Before becoming the head coach at Lycoming, he served as an assistant coach at Stony Brook, and as the director of basketball operations at Florida State. Rancourt also served as the head coach at John Jay College (1999-2003) where he went 55-48.

Rancourt will replace Jason Harlow who spent the past two-seasons as the interim head coach at WestConn (26-26). Harlow took over after the retirement of long-time head coach Bob Campbell following the 2015-16 season.

An official announcement is expected tomorrow.
