Tulane's Dunleavy explains decision to try college now

NEW ORLEANS (AP) After decades in the NBA as a player and coach, Mike Dunleavy Sr. began his first college coaching job by saying he wanted to take over Tulane's languishing men's basketball program to put himself "in position to coach again and really to be a teacher."

Tulane, which formally introduced Dunleavy in its on-campus arena Tuesday, is hoping the 62-year-old Dunleavy's 17 years of experience coaching at professional basketball's highest level will translate well in college. He last coached in the NBA with the Los Angeles Clippers from 2003 to 2010.

Athletic director Troy Dannen said Dunleavy approached Tulane about its opening. He replaces Ed Conroy, who coached Tulane for six seasons.
