Nearly three months after firing head coach Jesse Agel, Brown has hired Penn assistant Mike Martin to fill the vacancy, the school announced Thursday afternoon.
A press conference is scheduled for Friday.
Martin is a 2004 graduate of Brown, having started for four seasons at the school as part of the winningest class in the program’s history.
Following graduation, Martin became an assistant at Brown, before moving on to the same role at Penn, where he has remained the past six seasons.
Agel was fired after four seasons at Brown, during which he amassed an overall record of 39-79. The Bears finished last season with an overall record, including 2-12 in the Ivy League.
While at Penn, Martin had a hand in recruiting guard Zack Rosen, who averaged 18.5 points for the Quakers last season.
