University of Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta has confirmed that Siena coach Fran McCaffery will be named the new men’s basketball coach. Barta says he’ll introduce McCaffery at an 11 am press conference in Iowa City Monday.
McCafferey has been at Siena for five seasons with a record of 112-51. His team won the MAAC Championship this year and lost in the first round of the NCAA tourney to Purdue.
McCaffery will replace Todd Lickliter who was fired March 15th after three seasons. Lickliter did not have a winning season at Iowa after replacing Steve Alford.
