LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former Toronto Raptors coach Darrell Walker has been hired as the coach at Arkansas-Little Rock.

Walker’s hiring follows the firing of former coach Wes Flanigan this month after a school-record 25 losses by the Trojans. The 57-year-old Walker most recently spent two seasons as the coach at Division II Clark Atlanta University, where he was 45-18.

He coached the Raptors from 1996-98 and the Washington Wizards in 2000, also working as an assistant for three other NBA teams and coaching the WNBA’s Washington Mystics.

The Trojans finished 30-5 in during the 2015-16 under current Texas Tech coach Chris Beard, defeating Purdue as a 12th seed in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Sun Belt Conference school was 7-25 this season, the most losses for the school in 88 seasons of playing basketball.
