MyBB Matt Figger selected as head coach
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Vice President and Director of Athletics Chasse Conque announced on Monday the hiring of 2017-18 Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) Coach of the Year Matt Figger, who had been the head coach at Austin Peay for the last four seasons, as the new men’s basketball head coach.



Figger will be formally introduced to the media at a press conference in the near future. The date and time have not yet been determined. Fans will not be able to attend in-person but will be able to watch online at WACDigitalNetwork.com.



During his four years at Austin Peay, Figger compiled a 76-51 (.598) record, including a 49-25 (.662) mark in OVC play.



“All the candidates we met with spoke highly about our basketball program and the strong foundation built by Coach Lew Hill,” UTRGV President Guy Bailey said. “Coach Figger certainly recognizes that our program is on the rise, and we are confident that he is the right person for the job. He has had tremendous success as a Division I head coach, and we are delighted to have him.”
