Michigan Tech has hired Mel Pearson as the next head coach of the program.
Pearson, a Michigan Tech alum, has served as an assistant at Michigan for the last 23 years. He turned down the job last month but after some thinking, he decided to take it.
Pearson graduated from Michigan Tech in 1981, also the last year that the Huskies have made the NCAA tournament. Pearson will replace Jamie Russell, who resigned after the season.
