MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) UCLA assistant coach Michael Lewis will be taking over Ball State's program once the Bruins complete their NCAA Tournament run.
Ball State athletic director Beth Goetz announced Friday she had hired Lewis to replace James Whitford, who was fired after going 131-148 in 10 seasons.
Goetz said Lewis won't officially begin his new job until UCLA's season is over. The Bruins faced North Carolina in an East Region semifinal late Friday at Philadelphia.
