Dick Hunsaker, men's associate head basketball coach at Ball State the past two years, has been appointed the Cardinals' new coach, athletic director Don Purvis announced Thursday.

Hunsaker, who will turn 35 Tuesday, succeeds Rick Majerus, who resigned Monday to take the coaching position at Utah. Prior to joining Ball State in May 1987, Hunsaker spent nine seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, Weber State College.
