PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland State has hired Santa Clara assistant Barret Peery as the Vikings’ new coach.

Peery spent last season with the Broncos under first-year head coach Herb Sendek. The team reached the West Coast Conference tournament semifinals for the first time since 2010-11.

Peery was also on Sendek’s staff at Arizona State from 2014-15. One of the stops during Peery’s coaching career was at Portland State, where he was an assistant from 2002-03.

He is the 13th head coach in its 56-year history, and the sixth since the Vikings joined the Big Sky Conference in 1996-97.

The Vikings finished 15-16 last season under Tyler Geving, who was dismissed last month after 12 seasons with the team, both as an assistant to Ken Bone and then as head coach.

Portland State will play off-campus next season while a new facility is built.
