Source: Matheny lands Elon job

Davidson associate basketball head coach Matt Matheny will be named Elon's new head coach at a 1 p.m. press conference today at the school, according to a source close to the proceedings.

Matheny, 39, has been on the Wildcats staff since 1993. He is also a Davidson graduate who played basketball and football at the college.

He replaces Ernie Nestor, who was removed after finishing 11-20 overall this season. Nestor was 67-117 over six seasons.

Elon, like Davidson, is a Southern Conference member, meaning that Matheny will now be coaching against his long-time mentor, Wildcats coach Bob McKillop.--Stan Olson
