 AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) -The Air Force Academy didn't look far to find its new men's basketball coach, promoting assistant Jeff Reynolds on Tuesday.
Reynolds will replace Jeff Bzdelik, who left for Colorado two weeks ago. The 50-year-old Reynolds is the seventh head coach in the academy's history and the fourth in the past five years.
Reynolds joined Bzdelik's staff two years ago after serving as an assistant at Tulane from 2000 to 2004. He was the head coach at Division II Wingate in North Carolina from 1997 to 2000, finishing 61-27. He also was head coach for the 1985-86 season at North Carolina Wesleyan, going 21-7.
Bzdelik went 50-16 at Air Force, but the Buffaloes lured him away for more than $750,000 a year.
