Longtime Akron coach Dambrot taking over at Duquesne

PITTSBURGH (AP) Keith Dambrot spent more than a decade turning Akron into one of the most consistent winners in the Mid-American Conference.

Now he faces an even greater challenge: making Duquesne relevant in the Atlantic 10. The Dukes hired Dambrot on Tuesday to replace Jim Ferry and give a program that's spent the better part of 30 years struggling to remain competitive a needed boost.

Dambrot spent 13 seasons with the Zips, compiling a 305-139 record. Akron won at least 20 games in 12 straight seasons and earned three NCAA Tournament bids under Dambrot, considered the best coach in the Mid-American Conference.
