LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -Former assistant Dale Layer is returning to Liberty as the new head coach.
Layer was introduced Wednesday as the Flames' eighth basketball coach. He succeeds Ritchie McKay, who moved down the road to Charlottesville to join Tony Bennett's staff at the University of Virginia.
Layer returns to Liberty after serving there as an assistant during the 2007-08 season. He was an assistant at Marquette last season.
The 50-year-old Layer has compiled a career record of 270-193 during 16 years as a head coach, which included stops at Colorado State and Queens College in North Carolina.
