LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — McNeese State University has found a new head basketball coach after a search that lasted less than two weeks.
The university, in a news release, said Thursday it will introduce Heath Schroyer to the public at a press conference on Monday. Officials said there will be no further comment on the hire until then.
Schroyer has nine years of head coaching experience at Portland State, Wyoming and UT-Martin and a 124-143 career record at the helm of an NCAA Division I program. Last season, he served as an assistant coach at BYU.
Schroyer will replace former head coach Dave Simmons, who led the Cowboys for 12 years and accumulated a 155-211 record.
Schroyer’s hire must be approved by the Louisiana Board of Supervisors.
