CARBONDALE, Ill. (KMOX) – On his way down to the Final Four in New Orleans as director of basketball operations for the Kansas Jayhawks, Barry Hinson will apparently be stopping off in southern Illinois.
Multiple sources are reporting that Hinson has agreed to become the coach of the Missouri Valley Conference’s SIU-Carbondale Salukies.
Hinson coached at Missouri State from 1999-2008 and compiled a record of 169-117.
Former University of Illinois head basketball coach Bruce Weber reportedly turned down the SIUC job this time.
The Southern newspaper in Carbondale is reporting Hinson will be introduced as coach during a Wednesday afternoon news conference.
