Tennessee Hires Donnie Tyndall as New Men's Basketball Coach

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee has hired Southern Mississippi's Donnie Tyndall as its men's basketball coach.

Tennessee announced Tuesday morning that Tyndall would be introduced at a 2 p.m. news conference. The hire had first been reported by ESPN and CBS Sports.

Tyndall replaces Cuonzo Martin, who went 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee before California hired him on April 15. Martin led Tennessee to a 23-14 record and an NCAA regional semifinal appearance this season.

Tyndall has gone 56-17 with a pair of NIT appearances in two seasons at Southern Mississippi. Before going to Southern Mississippi, Tyndall went 114-85 with two NCAA tournament appearances in six seasons at Morehead State. His career highlight came in 2011 when he guided Morehead State to an NCAA tournament upset of Louisville.
