“We are thrilled to have D.J. lead the Fairfield boys basketball program,” Fairfield athletic director Mark Harden said. “D.J. has obviously had some great success at Butler rebuilding that proud program, and everyone we talked to about him just raved about what he had done there and the type of coach and person he is. That came through when we met with him as well. We feel fortunate to have him leading the program here at Fairfield.”
Wyrick is replacing Jeff Sims, who stepped down after three seasons at the Fairfield helm. The Indians were 27-44 overall and 15-33 in the Greater Miami Conference in the Sims era.
Fairfield’s last winning season (12-11) came in 2014-15. The Tribe last won the GMC title in 2013-14, sharing it with Middletown.
