Faculty will discuss merger
|McCallum to take
on UH basketball hopes
Press conference to be held this afternoon
By Keenan Singleton
After a hectic week that saw as many as six possible replacements for the UH head basketball coach, Athletics Director Chet Gladchuk finally narrowed the list down to one.
It was confirmed Wednesday that former Ball State coach Ray McCallum will be the new head basketball coach for the Cougars. McCallum leaves his alma mater, where he served as BSU's head man for the past seven years, leading the Cardinals to a 104-67 record. He has also served as an assistant coach at Big 10 schools Wisconsin and Michigan.
He replaces former coach Clyde Drexler, who resigned on March 30, and who led the Cougars for the past two seasons.
Drexler posted a 19-39 record in his tenure as head coach of the Cougars, including a 9-22 mark last season.
McCallum will address the media and public in a press conference slated
for 4 p.m. today in the Athletics/Alumni Center.
