IPFW’s Tony Jasick to be named Jacksonville head coach

Tony Jasick IPFW

FORT WAYNE, IN. (WANE) – After a three-year run as head coach at IPFW that included a program record 25 wins and the school’s first postseason win in 2014, Tony Jasick will be named the new head coach at Jacksonville University at a press conference on Thurdsay afternoon. NewsChannel 15 sister station WTEV-TV in Jacksonville confirmed the hire with multiple sources on Monday night.

Jasick – who was honored with the Hugh Durham National Coach of the Year award last Friday – takes over for Cliff Warren who was fired after nine seasons with the Dolphins.

According to reports, Jasick first met with Jacksonville officials on Saturday in Dallas at the Final Four, before a second round of interviews took place on the school’s campus on Monday. IPFW is declining comment until the announcement is made official.

Since taking over for former head coach Dane Fife in 2011, Jasick has compiled a 52-47 record at IPFW. The University awarded him a contract extension prior to the start of last season that would have kept him in Fort Wayne through the 2017-18 season.
