Before his time at Tulsa, Roundtree spent two seasons coaching the defensive secondary at Delta State University in Mississippi.

Holman Wiggins joins the University of Memphis staff under newly appointed coach Justin Fuente. Wiggins and Fuente coached together at Illinois State under current Tulsa Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Line Coach Denver Johnson.

Wiggins spent one season coaching the running backs at TU.

Blankenship said he will wait until after the first of the year to name a permanent replacement.

Tulsa takes on BYU in the Armed Forces Bowl on Dec. 30 in Dallas.
