Former Oklahoma State point guard and current Fox Sports radio host Doug Gottlieb is set to become a head coach for the first time.

Jeff Goodman of Field of 68 reported Gottlieb will be hired Green Bay men’s basketball opening. Goodman noted Gottlieb will continue to do his radio show despite taking the position.

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein first reported Gottlieb was considered a “serious candidate” and confirmed he has a deal in place to be Green Bay’s hire.

The Phoenix lost Sundance Wicks, who was named 2023-24 Horizon League Coach of the Year, when he was hired by Wyoming on Sunday.

Wicks recently finished his first season at Green Bay. He led the program to an 18-14 record, its first winning season since 2019-20 (17-16). The 18 victories were more than the team had in the previous three years combined (16).

Gottlieb played five seasons in college basketball from 1995 to 2000. He began his collegiate career at Notre Dame before transferring to Golden West College in Huntington Beach, California.

After one year at Golden West, Gottlieb transferred to Oklahoma State prior to the 1997-98 season. He appeared in 97 games over three seasons with the Cowboys, averaging 5.2 points and 8.2 assists per contest.

Oklahoma State made the NCAA tournament in all three seasons with Gottlieb at point guard. The team advanced to the Elite Eight in his final year before losing to Florida.

Following a brief professional career in the United States Basketball League and overseas, Gottlieb transitioned into broadcasting. He co-hosted ESPN Radio’s GameNight and worked as a college basketball analyst for the network.

Since leaving ESPN in 2012, Gottlieb has worked for CBS and CBS Sports Radio. He is currently working for Fox Sports’ coverage of college basketball and hosts The Doug Gottlieb Show for Fox Sports Radio.

Gottlieb did win a gold medal as Team USA’s head coach at the 2017 Maccabiah Games. The U.S. defeated France 75-67 in the final.
