Michael Curry has agreed on a deal to be the next head coach at Florida Atlantic, sources told CBSSports.com.

Curry was the head coach of the Detroit Pistons in 2008-09, the last coach to lead the Pistons to the playoffs. He was also an assistant with the Philadelphia 76ers. Curry played in the NBA for 11 seasons, while also playing overseas for a few seasons. He was the president of the NBPA for four years, and played his college ball at Georgia Southern.

Guard Richard Morrow seemed to confirm the news via Twitter.

FAU and Mike Jarvis parted ways at the end of this past season, after Jarvis led the Owls to five losing seasons in his six years at the helm.
