Source: Kansas legend Manning to be next head coach at Tulsa

NEW ORLEANS -- Kansas assistant Danny Manning has reached an agreement in principle to become the next head coach at Tulsa, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Wednesday.

An official announcement is expected soon.

Manning led the Jayhawks to the 1988 national title before becoming the No. 1 pick of the 1988 NBA Draft and spending 15 seasons in the NBA. He joined Bill Self's staff at KU in 2007 and developed a reputation as one of the nation's top assistants.

Manning replaces Doug Wojcik.

Wojcik spent seven seasons at Tulsa.
