Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Tennessee State on Monday named Dana Ford as its new head men's basketball coach.

Ford previously worked at the university, serving on coach John Cooper's staff from 2009-11. He spent the next three seasons working as an assistant at Wichita State (2011-12) and Illinois State.

The Tigers needed a replacement for Travis Williams, who was fired last month after only two years. Tennessee State's win total dropped from 18 in Williams' first year to five this past season.
