The 56-year-old was announced by the school as its 12th basketball coach on Wednesday.
Several media outlets, including Newsday and The Buffalo News, reported Mihalich's hiring Tuesday night.
Mihalich replaces Mo Cassara, who was fired March 22 following a 7-25 season. Four Pride players were arrested in November on burglary charges stemming from dormitory room break-ins.
Hofstra lands an established coach and respected recruiter in Mihalich, who played a big role in reviving the Purple Eagles' proud basketball tradition. He finished his tenure at Niagara with a 265-203 record and five postseason berths, including two NCAA tournament appearances in 2005 and `07.
