Memphis to Announce Penny Hardaway as next Coach
UNDATED (AP) - Former Memphis All-American Penny Hardaway is heading back to his alma mater - as its men's basketball coach.
Memphis will announce Hardaway as its next coach tomorrow, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because Memphis hasn't publicly announced the hire. Memphis has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday.
The 46-year-old Hardaway replaces Tubby Smith, who was fired after going 40-26 in two seasons with Memphis.
