Crookston native Mike Hastings will be the next head coach at MSU-Mankato.
MSU-Mankato announced the hire on Saturday afternoon. Hastings will replace Troy Jutting, who was fired a couple of weeks ago after 12 years on the job.
Hastings previously was an assistant at Nebraska-Omaha and the University of Minnesota.
UND associate coach Cary Eades also was interested in the job, but will remain with the Sioux.
Hastings was the only candidate brought to campus for an interview. He also interviewed for the Michigan Tech position last offseason.
