 RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) -Jim Wooldridge, most recently the head coach at Kansas State for six seasons, was hired Wednesday as men's basketball coach at UC Riverside.
The 51-year-old Wooldridge has coached at the collegiate or professional level for 29 years. Before coaching at Kansas State, he was the head coach at Central Missouri State, Texas State and Louisiana Tech. He also served as an assistant coach to Tim Floyd with the Chicago Bulls in the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 seasons.
Wooldridge was fired at Kansas State in March 2006 after the Wildcats completed a 15-13 season. His Kansas State teams were 83-90. The Wildcats had winning records in each of his last two seasons after six straight losing seasons.
Wooldridge has a 312-237 record in 19 years as a college head coach. He didn't coach this past season.
``Jim Wooldridge brings a wealth of knowledge about what it takes to build a program and to position a team to not only compete, but to win,'' Stan Morrison, the UC Riverside director of athletics, said in a statement. ``His single focus will be immediately apparent to his players, assistants, and colleagues in the department.
``At the same time, he will be in our community in a number of ways and he will serve as a wonderful ambassador of his program, our department of athletics and our university.''
