Hinson guided Missouri State to four postseason appearances and three Missouri Valley Conference Tournament championship games in nine years. Under his direction the Bears were 169-117 and had eight winning seasons.
“We have hired Barry Hinson to help us connect with our
former players and to raise money for our new facilities,”
Perkins said. “We’re excited to have someone of
Barry’s expertise and reputation on our staff. This
is a position we have looked to fill for quite some time and are glad
he is on board to reach out to our former players.”
Hinson was an assistant for current KU coach Bill Self at Oral Roberts
from 1993-97. When Self moved on to Illinois, Hinson took over the
reigns at ORU for the next two seasons, 1997-98 and 1998-99, before
moving on to Missouri State. Overall, the 1983 Oklahoma State
University graduate has posted a 205-140 record in 11 seasons.
“I’ve known Barry since we were in college. He is a
terrific coach and more importantly a great friend who has been very
loyal to me over the years,” Self said. “I am
extremely excited that Lew has helped provide this opportunity for him
and his wife Angie to come up and be a part of what we think is
something pretty special.”
