Kansas head basketball coach Bill Self, not only lost the national championship game to the Kentucky Wildcats, but he is losing two of his top assistant coaches as well.

First, director of basketball operations Barry Hinson announced that he had taken the job at Southern Illinois.

And now, its long-time assistant Danny Manning will become the new head coach at Tulsa.

Manning, who played for the Jayhawks from 1984-88, was a smooth-shooting inside-outside player who at 6’10, 230-pounds, scored 2,951 career points and is the Lawrence, Kansas school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder. Self, earlier in his career, was the head coach at Tulsa.

The 45-year-old Manning played in the NBA with the LA Clippers, Atlanta, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Utah, Dallas and Detroit.

Former Ohio State center Byron Mullens may have received the break he’s been waiting for; a trade.

The Charlotte Bobcats acquired the 22-year-old native of Canal Winchester, Ohio from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a 2013 second-round draft choice.

The Bobcats hope he can pickup the void left by the loss of Kwame Brown, who left to sign with Golden State Warriors.

The 7-foot, 275-pound Mullens had an up-and-down player with the Thunder. He could not crack the regular or backup rotation playing behind Kendrick Perkins, Nazr Mohammed and Cole Aldrich and spent time in the NBA Developmental League with Tulsa more than in Oklahoma City.

He only played in 26 games the last two seasons.

Tulane football coach Toledo resigns

UTEP beat Tulane University 44-7 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Saturday and the fans in New Orleans chanted “fire coach Toledo.”

Earlier this week,  Tulane head coach Bob Toledo met with athletic director Rick Dickson and the two mutually agreed that the football coach should resign.

Dickson has named Mark Hutson as the interim coach for Tulane’s remaining six games. Hutson also was the interim head coach at Eastern Illinois in 2006. Hutson has been the Green Wave’s offensive line coach for all five years with Toledo. He led Eastern Illinois to a co-Ohio Valley Conference championship and an 8-5 record in his season as interim head coach and he has also been an assistant at Tulsa and Arkansas.

Toledo, who is 65, a former head coach at UCLA, took over the Tulane Green Wave in 2007. Eventhough his record was 13-35 in his first four years, Toledo received a two-year extension after last season in the hope his recruiting efforts would pay off with a winning season in 2011, but the team is 2-5 and has been blown out by Tulsa, Duke, Army and UTEP.
