SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Johnny Dawkins, a longtime assistant coach at Duke, has been hired as Stanford's new men's basketball coach.
Dawkins replaces Pac-10 Coach of the Year Trent Johnson, who left for LSU earlier this month, two people close to the situation said Saturday. Both people requested anonymity because Stanford had not made an official announcement, which could come as soon as Monday.
The 44-year-old Dawkins was an All-American at Duke and has been on the coaching staff there since 1998.
Stanford reached the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2001, losing to Texas. The Cardinal face the loss of twin 7-foot sophomores Brook and Robin Lopez, who both declared themselves eligible for the NBA draft.
