WKU Names Ray Harper Full-Time Men's Basketball Coach
Western Kentucky University Athletics Director Ross Bjork announced Sunday that Ray Harper will have the word "interim" removed from his title and become the school's 14th full-time men's basketball coach.
Harper has led the Hilltoppers since Ken McDonald was fired from the job in early January.
Before coming to WKU to serve as an assistant coach, Harper won four lower-division national championships while head coach at Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro and Oklahoma City University.
WKU will hold an official introduction and pep rally at 6:00 Monday night on the main floor of E.A Diddle Arena.
