Jacksonville Hires Jasick as Basketball Coach
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville University has hired Tony Jasick as its men's basketball coach.
Jasick spent the last season as the head coach at Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne. He led the Mastodons to a school-record 25 wins last season, including a victory in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.
The 36-year-old Jasick signed a five-year contract with Jacksonville. He replaces Cliff Warren, whose contract was renewed last month after a third consecutive losing season.
Jasick compiled a 52-47 record at IPFW after being promoted to the top job in 2011. He worked with the Mastodons for nine years, moving up from assistant to associate to head coach.
A 2000 graduate of Mars Hill College, Jasick spent time at Middle Tennessee State, Newberry College and North Alabama before joining IPFW in 2005.
