Kansas has hired University of Florida assistant Norm Roberts, bringing back a familiar face to join Bill Self's staff.

The Jayhawks announced the move Monday, saying Roberts will
replace Danny Manning, who is now the head coach at Tulsa.

Roberts spent six years as the head coach at St. John's, where
he went 81-101before he fired in March 2010. Roberts, a 1987
graduate of Queens College in New York City, spent a season working for the Big East Network before joining Billy Donovan's staff at
Florida.

Roberts has been an assistant under Self at four different
schools. He was associate head coach at Kansas (2003-04) and an
assistant at Illinois (2000-03), Tulsa (1997-2000) and Oral Roberts
(1995-97).

His return means he will be coaching his son, Niko, a sophomore
guard for the Jayhawks.
