VALPARAISO | Homer Drew officially announced his retirement as Valparaiso men's basketball coach at a news conference Tuesday morning.

Associate head coach Bryce Drew has been named the 21st coach in the program's history and will take over the Crusaders immediately.

Homer Drew will take a new role with Valparaiso as Associate Athletic Director.
