Baton Rouge Community College has found someone to lead its new basketball program.

Pending board approval, Michael Landers will take over as head basketball coach and athletic director.

Landers comes to BRCC from Trinity Valley College in Athens, Texas. He's been the women's coach there for nine years and the A.D. for three.

Landers is making the move for personal reasons. His wife is Kenya Larkin-Landers, an assistant at LSU.

He led Trinity Valley to a national championship in the 2003-2004 season. TVCC has won eight straight outright conference titles.
