BUFFALO –  Nate Oats, the head-coach for the Buffalo Bulls men’s basketball team for the last five years, accepted the head coaching position for the University of Alabama’s basketball team on Wednesday. 

Earlier this month, Oats had signed an extension to remain head-coach for the Bulls until 2024.

During his run as the Bulls head-coach, Oats led the team to four Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC) Championships in his five-year tenure.



Oats also helped the team become nationally ranked for the first time in its history, as UB finished with a 32-4 record this season.

Buffalo was eliminated from March Madness in the second round on Sunday, losing 78-58 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Oats finished his time as UB’s coach with a 97-43 record, including a conference record of 52-20.



Oats will be replacing former NBA point-guard, Avery Johnson as Alabama’s men’s basketball head-coach.
