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.”
