LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — McNeese State names Heath Schroyer its next head basketball coach after a search that lasted less than two weeks.

The university said Thursday it will introduce Schroyer at a news conference on Monday. Officials say there will be no further comment on the hire until then.

Schroyer replaces former head coach Dave Simmons, who led the Cowboys for 12 years and accumulated a 155-211 record.

He has nine years of head coaching experience at Portland State, Wyoming and UT-Martin and a 124-143 career record at the helm of an NCAA Division I program. Last season, he served as an assistant coach at BYU.
