Buffalo promotes Oats to replace Hurley as basketball coach

AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo moved swiftly to replace Bobby Hurley by promoting assistant Nate Oats to take over as head coach of its men's basketball team.

Oats' promotion Saturday came two days after Hurley was hired by Arizona State. Oats spent the past two seasons as an assistant under Hurley and brings continuity to a team that earned its first NCAA Tournament berth last month.

"After hours of conversations with Nate, it became very clear to me that the best candidate to lead our men's basketball team was already on campus," athletic director Danny White said in a statement released by the school. "Nate has tremendous experience as one of the finest coaches in America at both the collegiate and high school levels, and played an absolutely critical role in elevating our program."
