This will be Hubbard's second-career head-coaching position, following a six-year stint at North Texas from 2008-2013. His resume also includes stints as an assistant at Louisiana-Lafayette and Kansas.
He holds a career .500 record as a head coach, though that mark does include the North Texas program's all-time wins record.
He takes over a Wolverines program that took a significant step down in 2016, posting just a .173 winning percentage with nine victories on the year. The squad never won a home game in the '16 season and their mark in the "W" column was exactly 1/2 of the previous-season's total.
A formal announcement on the hire is expected shortly.
