DETROIT -- Detroit Titans hired Ray McCallum as its new men's basketball coach Friday, replacing the retired Perry Watson.

McCallum was Ball State's coach from 1993 to 2000, going 126-76 with two NCAA tournament bids, and led Houston for four seasons. He was an assistant at Indiana the past two seasons.

Watson retired last month with a 258-185 record.
