Report: Mike Dunleavy Sr. to be hired as Tulane head coach
Friday March 25th, 2016

Tulane is close to hiring Mike Dunleavy Sr. as its new head coach, reports Yahoo Sports’s Pat Forde.

Dunleavy, who has spent his entire coaching career in the NBA, has not coached since 2010, when he was with the Los Angeles Clippers. Dunleavy also coached the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers during his time in the Association.

Tulane joined the American Athletic Conference in 2014, but has won only nine of its conference games since entering the league. The Green Wave recently fired Ed Conroy after six seasons—in only one of which the team finished with a winning record.
