Darian DeVries Leaves Drake To Take Over At West Virginia

After leading Drake to six seasons of 20 wins or more Darian DeVries has left to become the new coach at West Virginia. The Bulldogs won two straight Missouri Valley Conference Tournament titles and played in the NCAA Tournament three times in the last four years. Drake AD Brian Hardin.

Hardin says he was first contacted by West Virginia AD Wren Baker the day after the Bulldogs lost to Washington State in the NCAA Tournament.

The Bulldogs have a talented, young roster and Hardin says his first priority is to find the right coach.

Hardin would not say if two-time Missouri Valley Player of the Year Tucker Deries will follow his father to West Virginia despite numerous reports that he will. Hardin says the Bulldog program is in a great place because of the success Darian DeVries enjoyed.
