TCU to hire KU assistant

Neil Dougherty, an assistant coach at Kansas, is expected to be introduced today as TCU's coach, replacing Billy Tubbs.

Dougherty met at least three times with TCU officials, including athletic director Eric Hyman, over the past two weeks, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

The 40-year-old Dougherty, who never has held a head-coaching job, has been an assistant for Roy Williams at Kansas for seven seasons.

MISSOURI: Though other schools might come calling, coach Quin Snyder is staying with the Tigers, he told students during a rally welcoming the team from the NCAA West Region.

MONTANA: Coach Don Holst was fired even though he took the Grizzlies to the NCAA Tournament. The school said it won't renew his contract and is launching a search for a successor. Holst's team went 16-15 and won the Big Sky tournament.

RATINGS: Overnight ratings for the NCAA Tournament were lower Saturday than in 2001, the first year-to-year drop so far. CBS Sports' telecasts of two region finals averaged a 6.9 overnight rating, down 3 percent from last year's 7.1 and the same as in 2000. Through seven days, the average overnight rating of 6.3 was 11 percent higher than last year's 5.7.
