HOUSTON -- Robert Moreland has been named interim men's basketball coach at Texas Southern six years after his firing ended a 26-year run there.

His 399 victories are the most in school history. He replaces Ronnie Courtney, who was fired in July. The Tigers went 14-17 last season.

Interim school president Timothy Boddie Jr. says Moreland probably will lead the team for just one season. The Tigers have reached the NCAA tournament three times under Moreland.
