Duquesne is expected to name Northeastern's Ron Everhart as its next men's basketball coach, multiple sources told ESPN.com Tuesday.

Everhart replaces Danny Nee.

Everhart led the Huskies to 19-11 overall, 12-6 in the conference in their first season in the Colonial Athletic Association after leaving the America East. A news conference might occur Thursday.

Everhart led NU to the NIT in 2005 after losing to Vermont in the America East tournament title game. The Huskies lost to Memphis in the first round.

Everhart was named coach of the year in 2004-05 in the America East.

Everhart is known to be a wide-open coach who likes to run and shoot the 3-pointer. Everhart plans on bringing an uptempo style to Duquesne.

The Dukes have been buried at the bottom of the Atlantic 10, 3-24 overall, 1-15 in the league. Everhart is known as a rebuilder, taking over McNeese State and Northeastern.
