Tulsa hired Frank Haith of Missouri as its men's basketball coach Friday, landing a major-conference coach to lead the Golden Hurricane's transition from Conference USA to the American Athletic Conference this summer. The 48-year-old Haith said the move came quickly: He was contacted Thursday and was particularly interested by Tulsa's upcoming move to the home of national champion UConn and teams like Memphis and Cincinnati. ''There's no question that Tulsa's move into the American Athletic Conference was a big part of making the decision to come here. It's a basketball league.'' Haith was 76-28 at Missouri, which plays in the SEC.
