Peery the choice at Portland St.

Portland State has hired Barret Peery as the next men’s basketball coach. The sides agreed in principle on Friday and the deal was finalized over the weekend.

Peery has a reputation as a great recruiter, has deep ties to the community college ranks and comes with successful head coaching experience. He was also a Vikings assistant on coach Heath Schroyer’s staff in 2002-03.

Peery served as an assistant on Herb Sendek’s staff at Santa Clara last season, and prior to that coached with Sendek at Arizona State. Northwest Christian head coach Luke Jackson also interviewed with Portland State, per multiple sources.
