Alexander leaves Stetson to take Lipscomb job

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Casey Alexander resigned after two seasons as head coach of the Stetson University men's basketball team to take a similar job with Lipscomb, another Atlantic Sun Conference squad.

Alexander, a native of Nashville, made his decision to return home to take the reins of his former school's rival.

In his two seasons leading the Hatters program, Alexander posted a 24-36 overall record, including a 17-19 record in A-Sun play.

"I'm making this move with mixed emotions because there are so many people at Stetson I hate to disappoint, most notably our returning players and signees, because they are the face of the program," Alexander said.

He takes over at Lipscomb for Scott Sanderson, who stepped down as the school's coach after 14 years at the helm. Sanderson guided the team to a 222-201 record during his tenure, and this past season Lipscomb went 12-18, but beat Sweet 16 surprise team Florida Gulf Coast twice during the regular season.

"Lipscomb University is a perfect fit for my family and me," Alexander said. "We couldn't be more excited about this opportunity. The philosophy of the Lipscomb program is a great alignment with what we stand for."

Prior to taking his first head coaching role at Stetson, Alexander spent 16 years at Belmont under head coach Rick Byrd.
