From AD Greg Byrne...
“I have been watching Coach Oats for the last few years as he has led the University at Buffalo to unprecedented heights," Byrne said in a news release Wednesday afternoon. "His commitment to developing the student-athlete both on and off the court was what really stuck out. As we spoke to some of the best college and pro basketball minds in the country, his name came up time and time again. Coach Oats will hit the ground running starting tonight, and we look forward to him having a long and successful career with the Alabama Crimson Tide.”
