COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Furman has hired Colorado State assistant Niko Medved as its new men's basketball coach.
A person familiar with the hire told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school has not made an official announcement about its basketball coach. The person said Medved's hiring will be announced on Friday.
Medved spent the past six years at Colorado State. He was previously at Furman for seven seasons under Larry Davis. When Davis resigned in April 2006, Medved was the Paladins' interim coach for almost three weeks until Jeff Jackson was hired.
Jackson resigned last month after having just one winning season in seven years.
Medved was director of player development and recruiting coordinator under coach Larry Eustachy this season. The Rams went 26-8 and made the NCAA tournament.
