NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Lipscomb has reached a deal in principle to hire Alabama-Huntsville coach Lennie Acuff to the same position, sources tell Newschannel 5. An official announcement could come as soon as today.

Acuff has directed UAH to a 437-214 record over 22 seasons. He boasts an overall record of 554-325 including seven seasons at Berry College.

He earned his 400th win as a head coach in 2017-18 to pass Ed Murphy as the Gulf South Conference’s all-time wins leader.

Acuff led the Chargers to eight GSC regular season titles, captured three GSC tournament championships, and earned 11 trips to the NCAA tournament.

Acuff replaces Casey Alexander, who was hired by Belmont earlier this month after leading Lipscomb to the NIT championship game.
