Oats left for Alabama and has the Crimson Tide on the path for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

“At this time, we felt it was necessary to make a change in the leadership of our men’s basketball program,” UB athletic director Mark Alnutt said in a statement. “We want to thank Jim for his eight years at UB, including the last four as our head coach. We wish he and Connie nothing but the very best moving forward.”

Whitesell, 63, led the Bulls to the NIT in 2021.
