A source tells 2-On-Your-Side that Niagara University is set to hire Chris Casey of LIU Post as head basketball coach to replace Joe Mihalich.
Casey went 62-25 in three seasons at LIU Post that included two Division II NCAA Tournament appearances. He has also worked as an assistant coach at St. John's.
CBSSports.com was first to report the news.
Mihalich left for Hofstra after leading the Purple Eagles to a regular season title in the MAAC.
Casey is expected to be introduced early next week in Lewiston.
