Dennis Felton hired at Cleveland St.

Dennis Felton’s coaching connections span the country, from college to the NBA. Cleveland State is counting on them to turn things around.

Felton, who guided both Western Kentucky and Georgia to NCAA Tournament appearances, was hired as Cleveland State’s coach Friday. He succeeds Gary Waters, who retired after 11 seasons at the school and the Vikings now at the bottom of the Horizon League.

Felton is sliding down a few chairs and returning to a head job after spending three seasons as an assistant with Tulsa. Before that, he was director of pro player personnel for the San Antonio Spurs.

“I’m eager to start working with our players to build a championship program and getting out to share my vision of how we plan to partner with the entire community to do special things at Cleveland State,” he said.
