Ohio introduces alum Jeff Boals of Stony Brook as coach

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) Ohio has introduced Jeff Boals as its basketball coach, hoping the Bobcats' former captain can revive a team that went 14-17 this season.

He succeeds Saul Phillips, whose contract was not renewed. Phillips went 81-77 overall and 40-50 in the Mid-American Conference over five seasons.

Boals was hired Sunday and resigned after three years at Stony Brook. As a player, he helped lead Ohio to the NCAA Tournament in 1994. Boals worked as an assistant at the school before spending seven seasons as an Ohio State assistant. He also has been on the staffs of Marshall, Robert Morris and Akron.
