Colorado State Basketball Coaching Search: CSU Agrees To Terms With Ernie Kent, According To Report

The Colorado State Rams have a new head basketball coach, according to Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com. Parrish reported Wednesday morning that the school has agreed to terms with ex-Oregon Ducks coach Ernie Kent, which confirms earlier speculation that Kent was in the lead for the position.

According to Parrish, Kent beat out former Iowa State and current Southern Miss coach Larry Eustachy as well as a few other current head coaches, including Weber State's Randy Rahe and New Mexico State's Marvin Menzies. Kent spent 13 years as the head coach at Oregon, making two Elite Eights in that time, but he was fired after the 2009-2010 season, and he's been out of basketball since then. In those 13 seasons, Kent led the Ducks to a 235-173 record.

Though the hire has yet to be officially confirmed, Parrish reported that a formal announcement from the school should come on either Wednesday or Thursday.
