HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Southern Mississippi is searching for its third basketball coach in four seasons.
Donnie Tyndall left the Golden Eagles on Tuesday for Tennessee after a successful two-year tenure that included a 56-17 record and two trips to the NIT quarterfinals.
Tyndall's up-tempo coaching style and engaging personality made him a fan favorite in Hattiesburg, and attendance improved at Reed Green Coliseum.
Southern Miss athletic director Bill McGillis thanked Tyndall for ''two amazing years.'' He says he expects the program to build on that success.
McGillis says he had a meeting with the players and has started the search for Tyndall's successor. He hopes to have a new coach within two weeks.
