HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall has hired Los Angeles Lakers assistant Dan D'Antoni as its men's basketball coach.
Athletic director Mike Hamrick announced D'Antoni's hiring Thursday. The 1970 Marshall graduate is scheduled to be introduced at a news conference on Friday.
The 66-year-old D'Antoni is the older brother of Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni. He spent the past two seasons on the Lakers' staff and has had stints as an assistant with the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks.
D'Antoni has no college coaching experience. He spent 30 years as coach at Socastee High School in Myrtle Beach, S.C., before leaving in 2005. D'Antoni replaces Tom Herrion, who resigned last month after an 11-22 season.
