PHOENIX (AP) Grand Canyon has hired former Vanderbilt coach Bryce Drew as its next men's basketball coach.
Drew's hiring was announced Tuesday. He replaces Dan Majerle, who was fired after seven seasons on March 12.
"We are unbelievably excited to have Bryce Drew lead our basketball program into its next phase of development," GCU President Brian Mueller said in a statement. "Bryce built a very successful mid-major program at Valparaiso and proved he can recruit at a high level at Vanderbilt but, most importantly, he embodies the Christian mission of the University in how he lives his life both on and off the court."
