Notre Dame assistant Martin Ingelsby has reached an agreement in principle to become Delaware’s head coach, multiple sources told CBS Sports on Tuesday afternoon.
A formal announcement is expected soon.
Ingelsby is a former Notre Dame player who has been an assistant on Mike Brey’s staff for each of the past seven seasons. His hiring means the Blue Hens now have a head coach for the first time since March 18, which is when they fired Monte Ross. Delaware, at that time, did not have an athletic director. And the school decided to hire an AD before it hired a men’s basketball coach, which is why the position went unfilled for so long.
Delaware finished 7-23 this past season.
The Blue Hens were in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.
