Ingelsby was one of four finalists reported for the job on Monday and would come to Newark with over a decade of experience on the Notre Dame sideline next to former Blue Hens coach Mike Brey.
Ingelsby worked primarily with Notre Dame’s guards and gained a reputation as a strong recruiter. If hired, his skills would be put to the test quickly as Delaware deals with rebuilding after a wave of transfers earlier in the offseason.
Jon Rothstein, also of CBS, reports that a press conference could be held as early as Wednesday.
Ingelsby’s hiring comes after a tumultuous offseason for Delaware that left it as one of the final schools to hire a coach for the upcoming season. It wasn’t until the university hired Chrissi Rawak as athletic director earlier this month that the search began to gain traction.
The Blue Hens are coming off a 7-23 season with a 2-16 record in the Colonial Athletic Association. They parted ways with former coach Monte Ross on March 18.
