IWHFKTWHUPOVPSQ.20140308024713DSU President Harry L. Williams today announced the hiring of Keith Walker – who served as the interim Delaware State men’s head coach for the last third of the 2013-2014 season – as the permanent Hornet men’s head basketball coach.

In announcing the head coaching appointment, Dr. Williams said that Walker made a strong case for himself by the way he took over the leadership of the team and energized the players as interim coach.

The DSU president commended the search committee, noting that it ultimately came up with a group of strong finalists for the post. “The fact that Walker emerged from this tough search process as the head coach selection reflects well on his most recent interim performance as well as on his long-time dedicated service as assistant coach,” Dr. Williams added.
