St. Louis University has hired former Oklahoma State men's head basketball coach Travis Ford to fill the same position, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

After serving as OSU's head coach for eight seasons, Ford and the program decided to part ways when the Cowboys finished this past season with a 12-20 record and failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament.

During his tenure at Oklahoma State, Ford recorded a 155-111 record and five NCAA Tournament appearances, only advancing past the first round once.

Ford played played one year at the University of Missouri in 1989-90 before transferring to Kentucky, so he has a connection to the state.
