Midwestern State Assistant Basketball Coach Nelson Haggerty was named Head Coach in a press conference Tuesday at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU.

Haggerty has been MSU's top assistant coach for the last two basketball seasons, helping lead the team to a 56-12 record and back-to-back NCAA Elite Eight appearances under former coach Grant McCasland, who left a week ago to take the same job at Abilene Christian University.

Haggerty retained fellow assistant Tres Segler as his top assistant coach and said that he will hire a second assistant in the next few days or weeks.

Before coming to MSU, Haggerty was an assistant at Central Missouri, where he reached two more Elite Eights in 2007 and 2009. Before that he was an assistant for three seasons at Pittsburg (KS) State.

He led the nation in assists in the 1995 season at Baylor University, where he played from 1991-95 and was twice named All-Southwest Conference.

Haggerty is the first African American male head coach at MSU in any sport.
