DES MOINES, Iowa, April 21 (UPI) -- Mark Phelps, most recently an assistant coach at North Carolina State and Arizona State, has been hired as head men's basketball coach at Drake.

Phelps replaces Keno Davis, who left Drake to take over at Providence. Drake was 28-5 last season and won the Missouri Valley Conference regular-season and tournament championships.

"I consider it an honor and privilege to be named the head coach at Drake University," said Phelps. "President (David) Maxwell has fostered a true family environment where the 'Drake experience' is a special one for students, faculty, staff and the entire Drake community.

Phelps was an assistant at North Carolina State from 1996-2006 under head coach Herb Sendek and moved to Arizona State with Sendek in 2006.
