American to name Mike Brennan head coach.

Mike Brennan has been a finalist for multiple Division I coaching jobs over the past decade, but never could snare that elusive hire. Today everything changes for the former Princeton and Georgetown assistant as Brennan will be named the head coach at American University according to multiple reports.

Brennan '94 served as an assistant under Jeff Jones at American for two seasons after leaving Princeton's staff before John Thompson III hired him at Georgetown in 2009.

A press conference is expected at 5:00 pm ET and can be streamed here.
