NAIA DIRT: Wayland Baptist opens

Story: Adam Nelson (@HD_DirtKing)

I can confirm that NAIA Wayland Baptist University (TX) head men’s basketball coach Ty Harrelson has resigned. It sounds like he will be pursuing professional basketball opportunities (he played overseas before getting into coaching).

Harrelson had been the head coach at WBU since 2015, where he led his teams to a 108-54 (.667) overall record, one Sooner Athletic Conference regular-season championship, one Sooner Athletic Conference Tournament championship, and four NAIA Tournament berths. His 2017-18 squad advanced to the NAIA Elite 8, and he was named as the 2018-19 Sooner Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. In 2014, Harrelson, a WBU alum, was inducted into the school’s Athletics Hall of Honor.

An official announcement is expected shortly.

On a side note…I am on vacation in Maine for the next 10 days. The DirtQueen is very understanding, but I won’t be on line as much as usual. Most updates will come via my Twitter HERE.
