KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Donnie Tyndall promises to bring the same aggressive, attacking style of basketball to Tennessee that worked for him at his previous two stops.

Tyndall called Tennessee a ``special, special place'' Tuesday as he was introduced as the Volunteers' new coach.

Tyndall replaces Cuonzo Martin, who went 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee before California hired him on April 15.

Martin led Tennessee to a 23-14 record and an NCAA regional semifinal appearance this season.

Tyndall was 56-17 with a pair of NIT appearances in two seasons at Southern Mississippi.

Before going to Southern Mississippi, Tyndall went 114-85 with two NCAA tournament appearances in six seasons at Morehead State.

His career highlight came in 2011 when he guided Morehead State to an NCAA tournament upset of Louisville.
