Southern Illinois will hire Wright State’s Scott Nagy as its next basketball coach, multiple outlets reported Thursday.

Nagy was 167-92 in eight winning seasons at Wright State, including NCAA Tournament berths in 2018 and 2022. The Raiders won the Horizon League regular-season championship three straight years from 2019 to 2021. They went 18-14 in the 2023-24 season.

Nagy, 57, previously coached for 21 seasons (410-240) at South Dakota State, helping the program transition from NCAA Division II to I beginning in 2004. He compiled a 167-98 mark with three Summit League regular-season and conference tournament titles and three NCAA Tournament appearances in four of his final five seasons there.

Southern Illinois fired Bryan Mullins on March 8 after an 86-68 record in five seasons. The Salukis were 19-13 in their recently completed season, losing to Illinois-Chicago in double overtime in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament.

Wright State is expected to promote associate head coach Clint Sargent to replace Nagy, The Field of 68 reported Thursday.
