Syracuse assistant Rob Murphy will become the next coach at Eastern Michigan.
Sources told FOXSports.com that Murphy, a Michigan native, accepted the job on Tuesday afternoon.
Murphy has spent the past six years on Jim Boeheim’s staff. He was also an assistant at Kent State under Jim Christian and a successful high school coach in Detroit with Detroit Central and Crockett Technical High.
Murphy also helped land Wes Johnson, who transferred from Iowa State and became a lottery pick after just one season with the Orange.
