Drake hires Gonzaga’s Giacoletti as new men’s basketball coach
DES MOINES (AP) — Ray Giacoletti was fired by Utah just two seasons after reaching the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament. The firing devastated Giacoletti, though he wound up at mid-major power Gonzaga.
Six years later, Giacoletti has earned another shot at a head coaching job with Drake, a mid-major desperate to enjoy success at anywhere near the level of the Zags.
Drake announced Thursday it had hired the 50-year-old Giacoletti as its new basketball coach. He replaces Mark Phelps, who was fired two weeks ago after five seasons.
