 RENO, Nev. (AP) -Longtime assistant David Carter was promoted Friday to replace Mark Fox as Nevada's coach.
Carter, 42, has been an assistant at Nevada since then-coach Trent Johnson hired him in 1999. He was elevated to associate head coach in 2004 when Johnson was hired by Stanford and Fox took over.
``David brings great integrity and competitiveness to this position and he is the right person to continue to lead the Wolf Pack basketball program forward,'' athletic director Cary Groth said at an afternoon news conference. ``He provides continuity and has played a significant role in building the foundation that has made our program so successful.''

``This program is not going backward, I promise that,'' Carter said.
The terms of Carter's five-year contract were not immediately released.
Fox told reporters during the announcement of his hiring at Georgia on Friday morning that he expected Carter to get the job. Fox also announced that he is taking assistant coach Kwanza Johnson with him to Georgia.
Carter also served as an assistant at Eastern Washington and Saint Mary's, his alma mater where he played in the late 1980s and was inducted into the school's athletic hall of fame.
Carter said his coaching philosophy is similar to Fox's. He said he likely will use a ``little more up-tempo'' attack and is leaning toward bringing in a junior college transfer to fill the last available scholarship on a team that went 21-13 this season while starting two freshmen and two sophomores. All but two players are scheduled to return next season.
``We're going to compete every year for a championship - that's our goal,'' he said. ``Play in the postseason. That's always been our goal.''
