SHREVEPORT, La. -- Centenary College hired Duguesne assistant Greg Gary as its basketball coach Friday.

Gary replaces Rob Flaska, whose contract was not renewed after three seasons.

Prior to Duquesne, Gary spent four years at South Florida (2004-07) and four more at Miami (2000-04). He began his coaching career at Tulane (1993-97) and returned to the Green Wave (1998-2000) for two more seasons after a year at McNeese State (1997-98).

A native of Anderson, Ind., the 38-year-old Gary played point guard for three seasons at Tulane (1989-92) and left as the university's career assists leader. He helped guide the Green Wave to a NCAA tournament appearance as a senior.

Gary inherits a Centenary team that finished 10-21 last season and 4-14 in Summit League play.
