John Peckinpaugh named Indiana Tech men's coach

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."
