According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Jenn Menendez, LIU-Brooklyn head coach Jim Ferry has been hired as the head coach of Duquesne, replacing Ron Everhart.
Everhart was fired on March 23 and several players from the team have since transferred.
Ferry, who led the Blackbirds to the NCAA Tournament this year, will now be charged with revamping a difficult situation in Pittsburgh.
One recruit, Willie Moore, has already been granted his release. Donovon Jack, perhaps the Dukes' best recruit, is wavering as well and will make a decision now that Ferry has been hired.
Ferry led LIU-Brooklyn to the NCAA Tournament two straight years and was the NEC Coach of the Year in 2005 and 2011.
