Danny Manning To Wake Forest


Danny Manning is leaving Tulsa to take over as Wake Forest's basketball coach.

Athletic director Ron Wellman announced Manning's hiring on Friday.

The school says it will hold a news conference next week on its campus in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Both Wellman - who also chairs the NCAA tournament selection committee - and Manning are in North Texas for the Final Four.

Manning attended high school in nearby Greensboro before becoming an All-American at Kansas, leading the Jayhawks to the 1988 national championship and playing 15 years in the NBA.

He was 38-29 with two postseason berths in two seasons at Tulsa.

His hiring ends Wake Forest's two-week search for a replacement for Jeff Bzdelik, who resigned under intense public pressure following four mostly unremarkable seasons.
