PORTALES, N.M. (AP) — Eastern New Mexico has named Southern Indiana assistant Brent Owen as its new men’s head basketball coach.
Eastern New Mexico Athletic Director Matt Billings announced last week that Owen will take over the program from Tres Segler.
Segler resigned on April 6 to pursue other opportunities outside of basketball.
Owen joins the Greyhounds following a nine-year tenure as an assistant coach at Southern Indiana.
Owen was instrumental in the rise of the Southern Indiana men’s basketball program, amassing a total record of 274-93 during his time as either a player or as an assistant coach with the Screaming Eagles.
A native of Chrisman, Illinois, Owen was a three-time Academic All-GLVC performer during his career at Southern Indiana from 2006-2009.
Eastern New Mexico posted an 8-19 record this season.
