Turner takes over at UC Irvine
UC Irvine has hired Russell Turner as its men's basketball coach, a school spokesman said Friday.
Turner, 39, served as an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors for the past six seasons and also has experience as a college assistant at Stanford and Wake Forest.
Athletic director Mike Izzi, a former Stanford administrator, announced last month that the contract of Pat Douglass would not be renewed after 13 seasons. The Anteaters were 14-18 last season.
