JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville has hired Tony Jasick as its men's basketball coach.

Jasick spent the last season as the head coach at IPFW. He led the Mastodons to a school-record 25 wins last season, including a victory in the CIT.

Jasick, 36, signed a five-year contract with Jacksonville. He replaces Cliff Warren, whose contract was not renewed last month after a third consecutive losing season.

Jasick went 52-47 at IPFW after being promoted to the top job in 2011. He worked with the Mastodons for nine years, moving up from assistant to associate to head coach.

A 2000 graduate of Mars Hill, Jasick spent time at Middle Tennessee State, Newberry and North Alabama before joining IPFW in 2005.
