Air Force Hires Dave Pilipovich As Head Coach, Removes Interim Title

Over the past month, the Air Force men's basketball program has been surrounded with uncertainty. Following the dismissal of Jeff Reynolds as head coach, it was tough to figure out what the direction of the program might be. However, according to Frank Schwab of The Gazette, the program now has some stability, as the interim title has been removed from Dave Pilpovich:

Air Force didn’t feel the need to wait until the men’s basketball season was done, as it decided to remove the interim tag off Dave Pilipovich’s job title and make him the permanent head coach.

The move to hire Pilipovich as the full-time coach was confirmed by multiple sources who did not want their names used because Air Force had not officially announced it. The school is negotiating a multi-year deal with Pilipovich.

The Falcons have gone 2-4 since Pilipovich took over as head coach, including a win over then No. 13 San Diego St.
