Sources: Lange headed back to Villanova
Navy head coach Billy Lange is leaving to rejoin Jay Wright at Villanova.
Sources told FOXSports.com that Lange, who spent three years on Jay Wright’s staff before getting the head coach at the Merchant Marine Academy, will return to Wright’s staff as the associate head coach.
Lange, 39, has been the head coach at Navy for the past seven years and has compiled a 132-132 mark.
Lange will give Wright a guy who can step right in and recruit at a high level – and could also be the guy who ultimately replaces Wright down the road if and when he leaves.
