Morehead State University officials confirmed Saturday night that Men's Head Basketball Coach Donnie Tyndall has resigned to become the coach at the University of Southern Mississippi.

MSU President Wayne D. Andrews and Athletics Director Brian Hutchinson praised Tyndall for his six years with the Eagles, including two NCAA tournament berths in the last four years.

Tyndall compiled a record of 114-84.

USM, a member of Conference USA, had been looking for a new coach since Larry Eustachy left earlier this month to become head coach at Colorado State.

Hutchinson said a national search for Tyndall's replacement would begin immediately.
