Fresno State introduces Justin Hutson as the new men's head basketball coach

FOX26 Sports reporter Ralph Wood broke the news Wednesday night that Fresno State hired Justin Hutson as the new head basketball coach.

Justin Hutson is currently the associate head coach at San Diego State.

Hutson emerged as a top candidate and was one of five finalists who went through interviews this week in Los Angeles.

He has also served as an assistant at UNLV, so he knows all about the Mountain West.

He also knows the Valley, having been head coach at Bakersfield High.

A news conference will be held Thursday at 3:00 p.m. to officially announce Hutson's hiring and FOX26 will carry it live online and on the FOX26 Facebook page.

Good luck Coach Hutson!
