MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says South Alabama has hired Butler associate head coach Matthew Graves as its head basketball coach.
Graves will be introduced at a news conference Monday afternoon.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school hasn't announced the hire.
Graves will replace Ronnie Arrow, who retired 10 games into the season as the winningest coach in school and Sun Belt history. Associate head coach Jeff Price served as interim coach the rest of the season.
Graves was a Butler assistant for nine seasons and was elevated to associate head coach in 2010.
Butler made it to the NCAA championship game in 2010 and 2011, but lost 74-72 to Marquette in the second round Saturday.
