Chris Beard is the new head men's basketball coach at Ole Miss.

OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Chris Beard is the new head men's basketball coach at Ole Miss.

The university made the official announcement late Monday morning.

Ole Miss will hold a public introduction on Tuesday at 5 p.m. at the Pavilion.

Beard previously held the same position at Texas Tech and most recently at the University of Texas.

Texas fired Beard earlier this year following his arrest for alleged domestic violence against his fiancee; however, authorities later dropped those charges.

Beard replaces Kermit Davis following five seasons as the Rebels' head coach.
