Wofford announced the promotion of associate coach Jay McAuley to head coach on Sunday to replace longtime coach Mike Young.

Young's departure to Virginia Tech after a school-best 30-5 record created the opening.

McAuley has served two two-season stints as an assistant with the Terriers, from 2008-10 and 2017-19. This is his first head coaching position.

"I am truly honored to be the next men's basketball coach at Wofford College," McAuley said in a statement. "... While this is a new and exciting chapter for both my family and the Terrier faithful, the mission remains the same: recruit and graduate first-class student-athletes, showcase an exciting brand of basketball, and win championships."

McAuley will be formally introduced at a press conference on Monday.

Wofford defeated Seton Hall in the first round of the NCAA Tournament before losing to Kentucky in the second.

Young went 299-244 mark in 17 seasons at Wofford.
