TUSCALOOSA | University of Alabama assistant basketball coach Dan Hipsher will be named the new head coach at Texas-Pan American today, the McAllen (Texas) Monitor reported Thursday.
Hipsher's son, Andy, an assistant coach at South Florida, confirmed the news on his Twitter account Thursday night.
Hipsher has been on the Alabama staff since Anthony Grant was hired as head coach in March of 2009. Hipsher recruited and coached Grant during his tenure as an assistant coach at Dayton University. As head coach at Stetson University, Hipsher also hired Grant as an assistant coach.
Hipsher was hired by UTPA athletics director Chris King, a long-time administrator at Alabama prior to taking over the UTPA program.
