Charlotte has gone with Ohio State assistant Alan Major to replace Bobby Lutz.
Sources told FOXSports.com that Major accepted the job on Friday, one day after taking a visit to the campus and meeting with the administration.
Major, 41, has been at Ohio State for the past six seasons and also spent time as an assistant at Xavier, Southern Illinois and Pacific.
Major was chosen out of a pool that included assistants Russell Springmann (Texas), Pat Kelsey (Xavier) and Joe Dooley (Kansas). Syracuse coach-in-waiting Mike Hopkins turned down the job last week.
Major is an Indianapolis native who graduated from Purdue in 1992.
