PEORIA, Ill. -- Bradley University has hired Brian Wardle as its new basketball coach.
Wardle led Wisconsin-Green Bay to the 2014 Horizon League regular-season championship and three straight postseason appearances in five years.
Bradley Director of Athletics Chris Reynolds said Friday that Wardle has a track record of success and has a work ethic and personality that fit the Bradley Braves.
Reynolds said Wardle, who played for Marquette and later was an assistant coach from 2003-2005, will be formally introduced Saturday.
In a statement, Wardle said he is honored by his appointment, saying Bradley's tradition and support was a draw for him. He is a native of Willowbrook, Illinois.
Wisconsin-Green Bay went 24-9 in the 2013-2014 season and received an at-large selection to the NIT.
