TULSA, Okla. — The University of Tulsa announced the hiring of Eric Konkol away from Louisiana Tech on Tuesday to be the Golden Hurricane's next head basketball coach.

Konkol is coming off of his seventh season at LA Tech where he posted a 153-75 win-loss record, including the 2020-21 season where his Bulldogs won the C-USA regular-season championship.

Before coming to LA Tech in 2015, he spent several years as an assistant for programs like Miami (FL) and Tennessee. Konkol also worked on Buzz Peterson's staff as a student assistant for the Golden Hurricane when they won the NIT in 2000-01.

Konkol is replacing Frank Haith at TU who resigned last weekend after eight seasons at the helm.
