ESPN: Frank Haith is Leaving Missouri for Tulsa

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Frank Haith has verbally agreed to leave Missouri and become the next men's head basketball coach at Tulsa, according to ESPN.com.

Haith takes over for the recently departed Danny Manning, who is now the Wake Forest head coach.

Haith has spent the last three seasons in Columbia, compiling a 76-28 record and making the NCAA Tournament twice. Last season Haith guided the Tigers to a 23-12 record and a berth in the National Invitation Tournament, where the team lost to Southern Mississippi in the second round.

Haith takes over a Tulsa team that went 21-13 last season and made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.
