Jerod Haase is expected to be named the next head coach at Stanford. A formal announcement from the school is expected soon.

Haase is a California native that has spent the last four seasons as the head coach at UAB. He got the Blazers into the NCAA tournament — and landed a win over No. 3 seed Iowa State — in 2015 before posting a 26-7 record this past season. UAB went 16-2 and won the Conference USA regular season title, but the Blazers lost in the conference tournament quarterfinals and were relegated to the NIT.

Before UAB, Haase played and Kansas and spent the better part of two decades on staff with Roy Williams at Kansas and North Carolina.

Haase will replace Johnny Dawkins, who was fired after eight seasons and just a single NCAA tournament.

CBSSports.com was the first to report Haase’s involvement with the program.
