Coaching Carousel: Stetson's Casey Alexander Heading to Lipscomb

The former Belmont assistant will make his way back to Nashville after a two year hiatus. Stetson is now back on the coaching search, while Lipscomb stole a conference rivals' coach in the night.

There was only one Division I coaching vacancy left to be filled and that was the Lipscomb Bisons. Now there is still one vacancy left as Lipscomb has created a little Atlantic Sun drama in filling their open position.

The Nashville based school didn't look far to grab the replacement for Scott Sanderson, as they have named Stetson head coach Casey Alexander as their new head man. Alexander turned the Atlantic Sun school around with a 11-7 conference mark last year and the school's first voyage to the conference semifinals in seven years.

Alexander has spent plenty of time in Nashville. He's a Belmont alum and spent 16 years as an assistant on the Bruins bench. Lipscomb has never won the Atlantic Sun Tournament title and has never appeared in the NCAA tournament. The Bisons did appear in the NIT in 2006.

Stetson now will restart their coaching search after Alexander's two year tenure at the Florida based school.
