BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Campbell has hired Richmond assistant Kevin McGeehan as its men's basketball coach.

The school announced McGeehan's hiring Thursday.

McGeehan spent the past eight years on Chris Mooney's staff at Richmond and was his associate head coach since 2008.

He helped the Spiders reach the NCAA tournament twice, and before that, the 39-year-old coached with Mooney at Air Force.

School President Jerry Wallace says he is ''convinced his experience and success at [Richmond] has prepared him to lead our program to championship results.''

McGeehan replaced Robbie Laing, who was fired last month after eight losing seasons in 10 years.
