In hiring DeVries, Drake seeks to emulate Creighton

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) For decades, Drake has watched as Creighton - a fellow small, private school in a mid-sized, Midwestern city - built up its basketball program to the point where NCAA Tournament appearances are an annual expectation.

It looks like the Bulldogs are trying to emulate the Bluejays.

Drake on Friday introduced longtime Creighton assistant and native Iowan Darian DeVries as its new coach, the program's fourth since December 2016. Terms of DeVries' contract were not disclosed.
