Arkansas-Pine Bluff is expected to name Oral Roberts assistant coach Solomon Bozeman its next head coach, Stadium reported Monday.

Bozeman would replace George Ivory, who resigned in April after 13 seasons and a 140-269 record. The Golden Lions had just eight victories the past two seasons combined.

Bozeman, 33, played at Arkansas Little-Rock and was an assistant coach there before joining Oral Roberts in 2018.

Bozeman is one of the most decorated players in Little Rock history, having earned AP All-American honorable mention and Sun Belt Player of the Year honors as a senior in 2011. He averaged 15.5 points per game in his two seasons after transferring from South Florida following the 2007-08 season.
