RICHMOND, Va. – For the third time in the past three years, an assistant coach from the VCU Basketball staff will be given the reins of their own Division I program. Will Wade, an integral presence on Shaka Smart's staff over the past four years, has been named head coach at UT-Chattanooga.

"I could not be more excited about the opportunity to lead the Chattanooga basketball program," Wade said in a UTC release. "We will build a program the student-athletes, alumni, and fans all take great pride in. We will employ a fast paced, pressing style of play similar to VCU. I cannot wait to get to work."

The 30-year-old Nashville native becomes the 18th head coach in Chattanooga's 90-year history and takes over a Mocs' squad that finished 13-19 a year ago, including 8-10 in the Southern Conference.

Wade's hire sprouts another branch on Smart's expanding coaching tree. He joins Mike Jones (Radford) and Jamion Christian (Mt. St. Mary's) as VCU assistant coaches that have made the leap to Division I head coaching positions since the Rams' magical Final Four run in 2011.
