CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) Chattanooga has filled its coaching vacancy by hiring Wisconsin assistant Lamont Paris.
Paris replaces Matt McCall, who was hired by UMass on Wednesday after posting a 48-18 record in two seasons at Chattanooga. The Mocs went 19-12 this season after going 29-6 and reaching the NCAA Tournament last year.
Chattanooga athletic director David Blackburn said Sunday night in a university statement that "this was not a hasty decision, rather it was a decisive one. Our staff has followed Lamont's progression over the last several years. We are excited he has chosen to join us."
