AP Source: Conroy to fill Tulane post

A person familiar with the decision says Citadel coach Ed Conroy

has agreed to fill the vacant coaching position at Tulane.

Conroy has been head coach at Citadel for four seasons. He will

replace Dave Dickerson, who resigned last week after five seasons

with the Green Wave. Tulane was 8-22 in 2009-10.

Earlier Tuesday, Robert Morris coach Mike Rice took himself out

of the running for the job, saying he would remain in his current

position. Former Oregon coach Ernie Kent was also among the

candidates to replace Dickerson.
