Miami-Ohio hires Tennessee State head coach John Cooper
After Arizona associate head coach James Whitford spurned athletic director Brad Bates, Miami-Ohio turned to Tennessee State's John Cooper. He'll be officially introduced on Monday, replacing Charlie Coles.
The school will introduce Cooper, who has spent the past three seasons at Tennessee State, on Monday at 3 p.m.
Athletic director Brad Bates was spurned by Arizona associate head coach James Whitford earlier on Friday -- and then turned to Cooper, who led TSU to its first winning campaign since 1996 with a 20-13 record this past season.
Cooper was also an assistant at Auburn, Oregon and South Carolina.
