Wake Forest hires Manning as coach
Danny Manning is leaving Tulsa to take over as Wake Forest’s basketball coach.
Athletic director Ron Wellman announced Manning’s hiring on Friday.
Manning attended high school in nearby Greensboro before becoming an All-American at Kansas, leading the Jayhawks to the 1988 national championship and playing 15 years in the NBA.
He was 38-29 with two postseason berths in two seasons at Tulsa.
His hiring ends Wake Forest’s two-week search for a replacement for Jeff Bzdelik, who resigned under intense public pressure following four mostly unremarkable seasons.

Racer Schumacher making progress
GRENOBLE, France (AP) — Michael Schumacher’s manager says the retired Formula One star now “shows moments of consciousness and awakening,” more than three months after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident.
Manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement that “Michael is making progress on his way.” She added that “we keep remaining confident.”
The 45-year-old Schumacher fell while skiing in France and hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain but some were left because they were too deeply embedded.
Schumacher’s condition stabilized after he was placed in the coma. In late January, doctors began the process of withdrawing sedatives to try to wake him up.
