Drake hires new head men's basketball coach


Drake has hired Gonzaga assistant Ray Giacoletti as the new men's basketball coach.

Giacoletti has worked under coach Mark Few for the past six seasons. In that time, Gonzaga won five West Coast Conference titles and reached number one late this season.

Giacoletti is perhaps best known for his three-year tenure at Utah. The Utes went 54-40 under Giacoletti, who previously spent four seasons as the head coach at Eastern Washington. Giacoletti replaces Mark Phelps who was fired two weeks ago. Phelps spent five seasons at Drake.
