Louisiana Tech hires Ole Miss assistant

Louisiana Tech, as expected, hired Ole Miss assistant Michael White to be its next men's basketball coach on Tuesday, a source told CBSSports.com.

A formal announcement is expected soon.

White is a New Orleans native who played at Ole Miss and has spent the past seven years as an assistant in the program -- first for Rod Barnes, then for Andy Kennedy. White replaces Kerry Rupp, who was fired earlier this month after four seasons that featured a 20-44 record in the WAC.

Many top assistants are gathering in Portland


Many of the top basketball assistants in the country have convened in Portland this week for the Villa 7 Consortium.

What the hell is the Villa 7 Consortium, you ask?

(Good question)

It's an annual event designed to help assistants learn from and network with the athletic directors who might someday hire them. There was a 'Casino Night' n Tuesday night and the assistants will pop in and out of sessions all day Wednesday as various head coaches speak about the ins and outs of running their own program. Among the 50-to-60 assistants in attendance to this invitation-only event are Ohio State's John Groce, Texas' Russ Springmann, Ole Miss' Michael White, Kansas' Joe Dooley, Florida State's Stan Jones and Clemson's Shaka Smart.

"It's a great opportunity for a young guy like me to not only learn more about coaching but to also develop more contacts in the business," Smart said by phone from Portland. "It's just a great event."

Head coaches speaking Wednesday are Arizona State's Herb Sendek, Xavier's Sean Miller, Virginia's Dave Leitao and Miami's Frank Haith.
