Paul Mills introduced as new Oral Roberts head coach

Oral Roberts introduced new basketball coach Paul Mills on Monday¬†after hiring him late last week. Mills had been on Scott Drew‘s¬†staff at Baylor for the past 14 seasons and is a graduate of Texas A&M.

This is the first Division I head coaching position for Mills, who previously served as the head coach for three seasons at Fort Bend Christian Academy in Texas. Mills’ long-standing ties to the Lone Star State could prove to be very beneficial for recruiting at his new gig.

Though he inherits a 8-22 Golden Eagles team, Mills is optimistic about next season. “I would not have left a great situation [at Baylor] if it weren’t for this group,” he said during his introductory press conference, “and we are going to do this, right now.”
