Washington is hiring Utah State men’s basketball coach Danny Sprinkle, according to multiple reports.

Under Sprinkle, the Aggies captured their first NCAA Tournament victory since 2001 when they ousted TCU in the first round, 88-72, on Friday. They fell to No.1-seeded Purdue, 106-67, on Sunday.

Sprinkle led the Aggies to its first-ever Mountain West regular-season title in his first season with the program. Sprinkle was named the Mountain West Coach of the Year earlier this month.

Prior to his one season with the Aggies, Sprinkle coached Montana State for four seasons, leading the program to back-t0-back NCAA Tournament appearances.

Washington fired former coach Mike Hopkins earlier this month after the Huskies failed to make the NCAA Tournament for the fifth season in a row. In seven years under Hopkins, Washington went 118-106 overall with a 62-72 record in conference play.
