OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former Oklahoma assistant women’s basketball coach Bo Overton has been named head women’s coach at Oklahoma City University.

OCU announced the hiring of Overton on Tuesday. He replaces Latricia Trammell who left to become an assistant coach at NCAA Division I Georgia State after winning back-to-back NAIA national championships at OCU.

Overton played at OU and was an NBA draft pick of the Phoenix Suns in 1983. He has been head men’s coach at Murray State and a men’s assistant at Oral Roberts, Texas State and Louisiana Tech.

He was an OU women’s assistant from 1998-2004 when the Sooners reached the NCAA Sweet 16 three times and the national championship game once.

Overton has spent recent years coaching abroad.
