UW-Green Bay coach Tod Kowalczyk takes Toledo job

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Toledo has hired Wisconsin-Green Bay coach Tod Kowalczyk to revive its men's basketball team after the worst season in school history.

Kowalczyk spent eight seasons at Wisconsin-Green Bay where he had a 136-112 record and put together consecutive 22-win seasons the last two years.

Wisconsin-Green Bay had three straight losing seasons before Kowalczyk arrived.

Toledo athletic director Mike O'Brien said Tuesday that Kowalczyk has proved that he can build a program.

He replaces Gene Cross who resigned after just two seasons. The Rockets finished 4-28 overall and 1-15 in the Mid-American Conference this season.

The Rockets haven't been to the NCAA tournament since 1980.
