TULSA - TU athletic direct Derrick Gragg says he will look at assistant coaches across college basketball and not just current head coaches in his search to replace Danny Manning.
"You don't want to exclude anybody," said Gragg. "There are a lot of good assistant coaches out there that are connected to not only great programs but great coaches."
Former Tulsa Golden Hurricane player Lou Dawkins told Big Al Tuesday he had an informal discussion with the university, and that he expects to be officially interviewed for the position.
Dawkins played for Tubby Smith and helped lead TU to the Sweet Sixteen. He is currently an assistant at Northern Illinois . He won two state championships as head coach of Saginaw High School in Michigan.
Manning resigned April 4 to take the head coaching position at Wake Forest.
