Utah Valley to Hire TJ Hubbard as Head Coach

Utah Valley will hire TJ Hubbard as the program's new head coach, sources have told JWOS.

Hubbard, a veteran coach who most recently spent time with the Jayhawks of Lawrence, Kansas, takes over the helm of the Wolverines after former head coach Nikki Palmer accepted a similar position at UC-Riverside.

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.
