Lipscomb hires Casey Alexander as head coach

USA TODAY Sports

The former Stetson coach is hopping across the Atlantic Sun for his new job.

Casey Alexander has been named the head coach of the Lipscomb Bisons, the school announced Saturday.

Alexander made an intra-conference move after spending the last two seasons as head coach the Stetson Hatters, who are also in the Atlantic Sun. Stetson finished 11-7 in league play last season under Alexander, losing in the A-Sun semifinals to the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles.

Before his two-year tenure at Stetson, Alexander spent 16 seasons as an assistant coach for the Belmont Bruins, who were also in the Atlantic Sun before leaving for the Ohio Valley Conference in 2012. Alexander also played at Belmont from 1992-95.

Lipscomb's was the final head-coaching position still open this offseason. Alexander replaces Scott Sanderson, who coached the Bisons for 14 seasons. He was 222-201. Lipscomb has never played in the NCAA tournament. Its only appearance in the NIT was in 2006.

A press conference officially announcing Alexander as the new coach will be held on Sunday.
