Mt. East Conference: Fairmont turns to former Mountaineer Mazulla

Former Mountaineer Joe Mazulla is set to become the new head men's basketball coach at Fairmont State.

Fairmont State didn't take long to choose its 12th head men's basketball coach in school history.

Former WVU Mountaineer Joe Mazzulla is slated to be introduced on Wednesday morning at the school as the new basketball leader.

Mazzulla will replace Jarod Calhoun, who left on Monday to become the head coach at Division I Youngstown State. Calhoun guided FSU to a 34-3 record this season, which ended in the NCAA Division II national championship game on Saturday.

Mazzulla had spent three of Calhoun's five seasons at Fairmont as an assistant. He was with the Boston Celtics developmental team this past season.

At WVU, Mazzulla was the valuable sixth man for Bob Huggins' Mountaineers that reached the Final Four in 2010.

With Mazzulla at the controls of the Falcon program, it means the 12-team Mountain East Conference with former Mountaineers as head coaches.

Rob Summers is the head coach of Ohio-based Urbana.
