Detroit hires Michigan assistant Bacari Alexander as coach

DETROIT (AP) Bacari Alexander is returning to his alma mater as the new coach at Detroit.

The Titans announced the hiring Friday. Alexander, who is from Detroit, was an assistant at Michigan for the past six seasons. He graduated from Detroit Mercy in 1999 after helping the school reach the NCAA Tournament twice as a player.

"My family and I are excited to rejoin the Titan family," Alexander said. "Over the years, I have been able to work with a number of great mentors and coaches that have fully prepared me for this opportunity."
