South Florida is expected to name Amir Abdur-Rahim as its next head coach, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.
The Bulls previously were linked to former Notre Dame coach Mike Brey, who interviewed for the post.
Abdur-Rahim, 42, will take the helm at South Florida after guiding Kennesaw State to its first NCAA Tournament berth. The Atlantic Sun champion Owls (26-9) gave third-seeded Xavier a scare before dropping a 72-67 decision in first-round play in the Midwest Region in Greensboro, N.C.
Abdur-Rahim posted a 45-74 record in four seasons with Kennesaw State.
He effectively replaces Brian Gregory, who was fired after six seasons earlier this month. Gregory had a 79-107 record while leading the Bulls, who have just one winning season in the past decade and have not appeared in the NCAA Tournament since 2012.
Abdur-Rahim is the brother of former NBA player and current G-League president Shareef Abdur-Rahim.
