Georgia Southern is hiring Alabama assistant Charlie Henry as its new men's basketball coach, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Henry was head coach of the NBA G League's Windy City Bulls for two seasons (2017-19) before joining coach Nate Oats' staff in Tuscaloosa.

Henry has primarily been in charge of coaching the defense for the Crimson Tide (29-5), who earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament after sweeping the SEC regular season and conference championships.

He would replace Brian Burg, who was fired last week after three seasons at Georgia Southern. The Eagles finished 17-16 this season, including 9-9 in the Sun Belt Conference.

Henry was an assistant coach at Iowa State (2014-15) and with the Chicago Bulls (2015-17), both times as part of head coach Fred Hoiberg's staff.
