Source: Donnie Tyndall hired

Morehead State's Donnie Tyndall has agreed to a four-year deal to become the next coach at Southern Miss, a source with direct knowledge of the negotiations said Saturday.

Tyndall edged Mississippi Valley State's Sean Woods and former UTEP and Nebraska coach Doc Sadler for the job.

A year ago, Tyndall coached Kenneth Faried and Morehead to an NCAA tournament win over Louisville.

Tyndall replaces Larry Eustachy, who left to become the head coach at Colorado State.
