FAMU hires Samuels to coach men's basketball

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida A&M has hired Byron Samuels as its next men's basketball coach.

Samuels, 50, takes over a program that went 14-18 last season and hasn't had a winning record since 2006-07. The team is also serving a one-year postseason ban from the NCAA due to poor academic progress numbers. The Rattlers are not eligible to win the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) regular season championship in 2014-15.

Samuels is replacing Clemon Johnson, who new athletic director Kellen Winslow fired in April.
