Danny Manning is leaving his position at Kansas as an assistant coach to become the head coach at Tulsa, according to ESPN's Neil Everett.
Manning, the all-time leading scorer and rebounder at Kansas, has spent nine seasons on the Jayhawk staff, including the last five as an assistant. He was the No. 1 pick in the 1988 NBA draft and went on to have a 15-year pro career.
At Tulsa, Manning will replace Doug Wojcik, who was fired earlier this month after seven seasons. Despite averaging around 20 wins a season, Wojcik failed to take the Golden Hurricane to the NCAA Tournament, a factor which weighed heavily in his dismissal. It also didn't help that the program's revenue has dropped 43 percent and season-ticket sales have fallen 35 percent since his first season.
Tulsa has not played in the NCAA Tournament since 2003, when they upset fourth-seeded Dayton in the first round.
Manning is still currently a Kansas assistant, and will coach the Jayhawks this weekend as they play in the Final Four in New Orleans.
