BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -Texas assistant coach Ken McDonald will take over as head coach at Western Kentucky.
McDonald replaces Darrin Horn, who left last week to become the head coach at South Carolina.
Athletic director Wood Selig confirmed the hire. McDonald will be formally introduced at a news conference Sunday afternoon.
McDonald spent the last four years at Texas under Rick Barnes. He previously worked as an assistant at Western Kentucky under Dennis Felton from 1998-2003, helping the Hilltoppers reach the NCAA tournament during his final three seasons with the program.
The Hilltoppers went 29-7 this season, winning the Sun Belt Conference tournament and advancing to the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament for the first time in 15 years before falling to UCLA.
