Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Dan Majerle was named the new head coach of Grand Canyon's men's basketball team on Monday.

Majerle, 47, takes over a team that will play in the Western Athletic Conference next season as the Antelopes move into Division I.

"I love Phoenix and the community, and it's a dream come true to be named as coach at Grand Canyon," said Majerle. "This is a growing university, steeped in tradition."

Majerle had been an assistant coach with the Phoenix Suns of the NBA, a team that he played with in eight of his 14 seasons in professional basketball.

He replaces former head coach Russ Pennell, who resigned last week.
