It will be Felton’s first head coaching job since being fired at Georgia in 2009. He spent the past three seasons as an assistant at Tulsa.
“Dennis Felton has a championship pedigree and has coached and recruited at the highest level,” CSU AD Mike Thomas said in a press release. “He will be an outstanding leader for the student-athletes in our basketball program, on the court, in the classroom and in the community.”
Georgia fired Felton midway through the 2008-2009 season following an 0-5 start in SEC play. He was 84-91 overall with one NCAA Tournament appearance in his six seasons as the Bulldogs’ head coach.
