Stony Brook has hired Ohio State assistant coach Jeff Boals as it new head coach, a source with direct knowledge told SNY.tv.

Boals replaces Steve Pikiell, who left to take the Rutgers job after leading the Seawolves to their first NCAA Tournament appearance. Jay Young, Pikiell's associate head coach at Stony Brook, had been in the mix to take over for his old boss but instead will join Pikiell at Rutgers.

"Stony Brook's a great place, there's great people there and I love those kids," Pikiell told SNY.tv and NJ.com at a coaches' clinic at Roselle Catholic on Friday. "Jeff does a great job, so I wish him luck and I'll try to help him any way I can."

Georgia Tech named former Memphis coach Josh Pastner its new head coach on Friday.

Gary Parish of CBS Sports reported that the deal was done after the $10.6 million buyout in Pastner's Memphis contract was an initial hold up.
