Alvin “Pooh” Williamson – a former University of Tulsa assistant coach and basketball player – was named to OU basketball's coaching staff this week. The 45-year-old takes the vacancy left when Chris Crutchfield took a similar position at Arkansas.

Williamson, a Beggs native, spent the past season as an assistant coach on Jim Larranaga’s staff at the University of Miami. Prior to that, he spent time on his mentor, Tubby Smith’s, staff at Texas Tech (2013-16) and Memphis (2016-18).
