Jayhawks Prepare for Ohio State while Danny Manning Prepares for Job in Tulsa

university-of-tulsa-1As the Kansas Jayhawks prepare for their Final Four game against Ohio State tomorrow (SAT) night, KU's assistant coach - Danny Manning - is preparing for a new coaching job in Oklahoma.  Manning has been selected for the head coaching job at Tulsa University.  As a star player for KU, Manning helped the Jayhawks win the NCAA national championship in 1988.  He's been on the coaching staff of KU head coach Bill Self for the past nine years.DANNY MANNINGKU Assistant Coach Danny Manning (Photo courtesy of KU Athletics)  Tulsa officials are planning an introductory news conference for Manning next week.  Manning's move comes on the heels of Barry Hinson's decision to take over as the head coach at Southern Illinois.  Hinson has been KU's director of basketball operations.  Like Manning, Hinson plans to be with the Jayhawks in New Orleans.  KU coach Bill Self says he's glad the news is out about these departures, because he didn't want any uncertainty lingering through the Final Four weekend.

Meanwhile, Jayhawk fans who won't be at the game in New Orleans this weekend are encouraged to watch the game in the "Phog" Allen Fieldhouse Saturday night.  Doors open at 6pm and the game will begin at approximately 7:45pm.
