John Peckinpaugh has been named men's basketball coach at Indiana Tech, the university announced today.
Peckinpaugh had been an assistant at the university during the 2012-13 season, and this past year had been a graduate assistant at IPFW, Indiana Tech said in a statement.
"We're extremely pleased to welcome John back to the Warrior family," said Martin Neuhoff, Indiana Tech's athletic director, in the statement. "He's a proven recruiter and coach who knows how to connect with today's players."
Peckinpaugh said: "I expect our teams to out-work and out-hustle every team we play. We'll be a team that is not only exciting to watch, but one that Indiana Tech and the Fort Wayne community can be proud of on and off the court."
