Knoxville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Tennessee filled its head coaching vacancy with Tuesday's hiring of Southern Miss bench boss Donnie Tyndall.

Tyndall went 56-17 with a pair of NIT appearances in two seasons at Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles earned a share of the regular-season Conference USA championship and won a school-record 29 games this past season.

The 43-year-old Tyndall also experienced success during a six-year coaching stint at Morehead State (2006-12), guiding the program to the NCAA Tournament twice while compiling a 114-85 record.

"He has a proven track record of success and has won at every level at which he has coached," Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said about Tyndall. "Donnie brings tremendous positive energy and a strong work ethic to this important leadership role, and we look forward to his impact on our men's basketball program."

Tyndall replaces Cuonzo Martin, who left for California last week after three seasons in Knoxville, and inherits a team fresh off a trip to the Sweet 16.
