TULSA, Okla. – Oral Roberts head men's basketball coach Paul Mills has announced the addition of Solomon Bozeman to his staff as an assistant coach. Bozeman joins the ORU staff after two years on staff at his alma mater, Little Rock.
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 hit a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds remaining to lift LR to a 64-63 win over North Texas in the 2011 Sun Belt Tournament championship, sending the Trojans to its fourth NCAA Tournament. Following his time in Little Rock, Bozeman played professionally in the D League and in a number of leagues overseas.
After his playing career, Bozeman worked at Abilene Christian for two years before returning to Little Rock. At ACU, Bozeman was the primary recruiter on Jaylen Franklin, the 2015-16 Southland Conference Freshman of the Year.
