After losing men's basketball coach Tommy Connor to the University of Utah, Westminster College was quick to promote assistant Adam Hiatt as his successor.

Hiatt, who served as Connor's assistant for three years, becomes the second coach since the program was reinstated in 1999. The Idaho native played for the Griffins under Connor from 2002-2004, leading the team to Frontier Conference championships and earning a NAIA All-America spot both years.

The athletic department and coach Connor, who will be an assistant under new Utes coach Larry Krystkowiak, both indicated that Hiatt was the desired replacement in a news release.

Hiatt will take over a program that Connor resurrected and made successful. Westminster has gone 264-114 since its reinstatement and won 20 games each of the last nine seasons.
