Niagara is expected to hire LIU Post coach Chris Casey to replace Joe Mihalich, sources told CBSSports.com.
Casey, a former St. John's assistant under Norm Roberts, led LIU Post to consecutive 20-win seasons and NCAA regional appearances in his first two seasons at the helm. He finished his three-year tenure at 62-25.
Casey takes over for Mihalich, who had a winning record in 12 of his 15 seasons and with the Purple Eagles. Niagara was a 19-14 last season and won the MAAC regular-season title.
