NEW YORK -- Iona has hired Tim Cluess as its men's basketball coach.

Cluess coached Division II C.W. Post to a 98-23 mark over four years, including a school-record 30 victories two seasons ago.

A former player at St. John's who played pro ball in Europe and Australia, Cluess will be introduced at a news conference Friday.

Cluess replaces Kevin Willard, who left for Seton Hall after three years rebuilding the Gaels. Iona was 21-10 this past season.

Cluess led the Pioneers to a 23-6 record this past season and reached the East Coast Conference title game for the fourth year in a row. He also coached one year at Suffolk Community College, leading the team to the final eight of the NJCAA Division III tournament.
