Drexel has found its next head basketball coach. Zach Spiker, who held the same position with Army for the past seven seasons. He will take over after the dismissal of Bruiser Flint. The Triangle’s Adam Hermann broke the story earlier this afternoon.
Spiker posted a 102-112 career record while at Army. This past season he helped the Black Knights go 19-14 overall with a 9-9 conference record. Furthemore, Spiker served as an assistant coach under current Penn head coach Steve Donahue from 2004-2009 at Cornell.
The 2013 Patriot League Coach of the Year will inherit a Drexel team that finished the 2015-16 campaign with a 6-25 record, their worst during Flint’s tenure. This will be a tough task for the 39 year old.
