Jesse KramerCorrespondent IApril 16, 2010

Brad Brownell (Wright State) to Clemson

Brad Brownell went 84-45 in four seasons at Wright State. Before he was at Wright State, Brownell went 83-40 in four seasons at UNC-Wilmington. He has won three conference championships and made three NCAA Tournament appearances, with his last appearance being in 2007. 

Jeff Bzdelik (Colorado) to Wake Forest

Jeff Bzdelik has officially accepted the challenge at Wake Forest. Wake put a lot of pressure of former coach Dino Gaudio, and fired him despite having some success, but Bzdelik does not seem to be bothered. He is 111-105 in his college career and has struggled at Colorado in the last few seasons. Bzdelik worked at Air Force before Colorado.

Billy Donlon (Wright State assistant) promoted to head coach

When Brownell left for Clemson, Wright State quickly promoted Billy Donlon. This will be his first head coaching job.

Milan Brown (Mount St. Mary's) to Holy Cross

Holy Cross hired Milan Brown on Friday afternoon. Brown signed a five-year contract. Brown did well at Mount St. Mary's, leading the team to an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2008. This will be Holy Cross' second coach in two years.

Brian Wardle (Green Bay assistant) promoted to head coach

Green Bay chose to promote Brian Wardle. Wardle has been a part of the program since 2005. 

Dan Leibovitz (Hartford) resigns

Dan Leibovitz is leaving Hartford after four seasons. He will be an assistant at Penn next season.

Most likely, former Hartford assistant coach John Gallagher will replace Leibovitz.
