Three days after former Salem head basketball coach Adam Williams left West Virginia to become an assistant at DI Stetson, the Tigers have their new head coach. The program promoted associate head coach Robert Ford to head coach on Monday.
It is Ford's first head coaching position after being in collegiate athletics as an assistant for the past eight years.
Ford has been at Salem for the past two years. The Tiger registered their best record since 2005-2006 season, going 17-9 overall.
