There’s going to be a shifting on the Tulane basketball bench this season.
A Green Wave spokesman confirmed assistant coach Jeff Strohm will not be maintaining his position on Ed Conroy’s staff.
“I was very pleased with my staff this season, but we are looking to shift things around,” Conroy said. “We are still evaluating what we are doing and will have it sorted out in the next few weeks.”
Tulane has already posted a job on its official careers site for a “first assistant” and the deadline for official applications is on Sunday. Conroy said there is still a chance Strohm stays on the Green Wave staff in a different role.
Strohm spent the past two years on Conroy’s staff working primarily with post players. He served alongside assistants Andy Fox and Shammond Williams last season.
In his two seasons, Tulane recorded winning records in the regular season and reached a pair of postseason tournaments, snapping a 13-year drought. However, the Green Wave’s appearances were in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and College Basketball Invitational, not the more prestigious NIT or NCAA tournament.
Last season, Tulane’s post play struggled to match the high production of its backcourt. The Green Wave’s power forwards and centers combined for 13.1 points per game, while the team averaged 63.6 points.
Morrow joins staff: Tulane women’s golf coach Lorne Don announced Wednesday the hiring of Mandi Morrow as the program’s first full-time assistant coach. Morrow will begin her duties immediately.
Morrow, 25 comes to Tulane from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, where she served as the assistant coach during the 2013-14 season. She helped the Jaguars to five Top-10 finishes, including three Top-5 efforts.
Morrow played for her father, Mike, at Kent State University from 2008-12 and helped the Flashes to four consecutive Mid-American Conference crowns. She twice was second team All-MAC.
