PITTSBURGH (AP) — Longtime Akron coach Keith Dambrot is heading to Duquesne.
Dambrot spent 13 seasons at Akron, compiling a 305-139 record. The Zips won at least 20 games in 12 straight seasons and earned three NCAA Tournament bids under Dambrot, considered the best coach in the Mid-American Conference. Akron set a school record for wins this season, but the top-seeded Zips were beaten in the MAC championship by rival Kent State and played in the NIT.
Duquesne has struggled in the Atlantic 10 for decades. The Dukes last reached the NCAA Tournament in 1981.
