Furman athletic director Mike Buddie confirmed Sunday evening that head coach Niko Medved was departing for the head coaching job at Drake University.
Earlier in the evening, a source told 7 Sports that would be the case.
Drake, located in Des Moines, Iowa, plays in the Missouri Valley Conference. Medved is a native of Minnesota.
Medved is in his fourth season guiding the Paladins, who made the CIT semi-finals Saturday with a win at Campbell, a program-record-matching 23rd victory of the season. Assistant coach Bob Richey will guide the team in their next game Wednesday night.
Medved’s Paladins won 19 games in 2015-2016, including a win in the CIT, the program’s first postseason win in 40 years.
