Idaho State is expected to hire Montana assistant Bill Evans, sources confirmed to CBSSports.com.
Evans, who was the head coach at Southern Utah for 15 years, will replace Joe O'Brien -- who resigned after a 2-8 start this season.
A news conference is scheduled for Thursday.
Deane Martin had been the interim coach since O'Brien's resignation.
Evans has been on the staff at Montana, which advanced to the NCAA tournament on Wednesday night after beating Weber State in the Big Sky tournament title game. He also received his master's from Idaho State.
