Doc Sadler lands Southern Miss head coaching job.

Good for Doc Sadler. 

The former UTEP/Nebraska head coach who was in Ames for the past season was hired as Southern Mississippi’s new leader on Wednesday night. Jeff Goodman from ESPN first reported the news via Twitter. 

Sadler will take over a program that went to the NCAA Tournament in 2012 and the NIT the past two seasons. The Golden Eagles lost in the NIT’s quarter-finals to Minnesota last season. 

Notably, former Iowa State head coach Larry Eustachy was the head coach at Southern Miss from 2004-2012. 

Check out later on tonight for possible replacements on the Iowa State coaching staff.
