    CARBONDALE, Ill. - Southern Illinois University head coach Barry Hinson announced on Friday that he has withdrawn his name from consideration for the men's basketball coaching position at Texas Tech.

    "It was an honor to be involved in the process at Texas Tech and I am flattered that they approached me," said Hinson, who recently completed his first season at SIU. "I think it's important for our fans to know that I'm very happy to be the men's basketball coach at Southern Illinois. Our entire coaching staff is working relentlessly to rebuild Saluki Basketball, and that effort continues full-speed ahead."

    Hinson has a 219-157 career record in 12 seasons as a collegiate head coach at Oral Roberts, Missouri State and Southern Illinois, and his teams have made four post-season appearances. Last year, he took over a Saluki squad that finished 8-23 the year before and improved the won-loss mark to 14-17. Hinson finished third in the 2013 MVC Coach of the Year voting.
