Univ. of Delaware hires new men's hoop coach
The University of Delaware finally has a new men’s basketball coach.
After an over two-month wait, Notre Dame assistant Martin Ingelsby has been hired to fill the vacancy. He will be formally introduced Wednesday morning in Newark.
Ingelsby has been on former UD head coach Mike Brey’s staff at Notre Dame for the past 13 years – the last seven as an assistant coach.
He also played under Brey after graduating from nearby Archbishop Carroll High School in Berwyn, Pa.
The 37-year-old Ingelsby replaces Monte Ross, who was dismissed after the Blue Hens suffered through a 7-23 season that included a 2-16 record in the Colonial Athletic Association.
Ross was 17-43 the last two years after guiding UD to its first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1999 when Brey was head coach.
UD's move to hire a new basketball coach was delayed as the school sought first to hire its new athletic director. It named Christine Rawak to that post May 13.
