Athletic director Janet Cone announced Friday that McDevitt is the permanent replacement for Eddie Biedenbach.
McDevitt had been running the program since Biedenbach stepped down earlier this month to take a job on UNC Wilmington's coaching staff.
He spent 12 seasons on the staff and was promoted to associate head coach before the 2011-12 season.
McDevitt played for the Bulldogs from 1997-2001 before becoming part of a coaching staff under Biedenbach that won three Big South tournament titles and reached three NCAA tournaments, including two straight from 2011-12.
