Head men's basketball coach Saul Phillips announced the hiring of Josh Vaughan as director of operations on Wednesday, July 17. Vaughan replaces Jared Swanson, who resigned to pursue another job opportunity.
Vaughan was an assistant coach at Minnesota State University Moorhead the past two seasons under Chad Walthall. He was the director of operations for Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C., for the 2010-11 season.
