Oregon State expected to hire Montana coach Wayne Tinkle
Montana's Wayne Tinkle is expected to get hired as Oregon State's next coach.
Oregon State athletic director Bob De Carolis has told members of the school's men's basketball team that he hopes to announce a new head coach Monday, according to a report from The Oregonian, and a source told CBSSports.com that Montana's Wayne Tinkle is expected to get the job.
John Canzano, a columnist at The Oregonian, tweeted Sunday that it will be Tinkle.
Arizona assistant Damon Stoudamire was previously considered the leading candidate after negotiations broke down between Oregon State and former UCLA coach Ben Howland, and sources told CBSSports.com that Stoudamire and De Carolis did talk by phone. But things never went farther than that, sources told CBSSports.com.
Oregon State is replacing Craig Robinson.
He was fired earlier this month after six seasons.
