CHICKASHA, Okla. (AP) - The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma has announced the hiring of Doug Hall as the new head basketball coach.

USAO said Monday that Hall takes over immediately after accepting the position on Friday. Hall succeeds Vinson Metcalf, who resigned in July for personal and family reasons.

Hall spent last season as an assistant coach at the University of Missouri-Kansas City after spending the previous three years as director of basketball operations at UMKC. He was head basketball coach from 2001-09 at Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas.
