(AP) - A person familiar with the situation said Oklahoma has hired Loyola- Chicago's Porter Moser as its men's basketball coach.

Moser, also a former coach at Illinois State University, will replace Lon Kruger, who retired last month after 10 years coaching the Sooners.

Moser led Loyola to two deep runs in the NCAA Tournament. The Ramblers reached the Final Four in 2018 and the Sweet 16 this year. He went 188-141 in 10 years at Loyola and has a 293-242 record in 17 seasons as a college head coach.

Moser led the ISU's men's basketball program from 2003-2007 after coaching at Arkansas-Little Rock.
