Longtime NBA coach Mike Dunleavy has agreement to coach Tulane

Tulane has a verbal agreement in place to hire Mike Dunleavy Sr. as its next head basketball coach, sources told CBS Sports.

One source called the completion of the deal "imminent."

Dunleavy replaces Ed Conroy, who was fired earlier this month.

He was previously the head coach of the Lakers, Bucks, Trail Blazers and Clippers. In his 17 seasons as an NBA head coach, Dunleavy was 613-716 and was named Coach of the Year in 1998-99, but Dunleavy has never coached in college.

Tulane finished 12-22 last season.
