Former Tulsa star Seals added to Manning’s staff
Shea Seals, the former Tulsa star whose NBA career was cut short
by a knee injury, is returning to the Golden Hurricane to serve on
new coach Danny Manning’s staff.
Manning announced Wednesday that he has hired Seals as the
director of player development and team manager. He says Seals will
be a mentor to Tulsa’s players, incorporate life-skills
opportunities into the program and reach out to the community.
The 36-year-old Seals had his No. 21 jersey retired at Tulsa,
where he holds the school’s career scoring record and played on
Golden Hurricane teams that went to the NCAA tournament four
straight years in the mid-1990s.
Seals has spent the past eight years as a high school coach in
Tulsa, winning state championships at Booker T. Washington in 2010
