Former Southern Miss and Tennessee men's basketball coach Donnie Tyndall has landed a new coaching job.

Tyndall is listed as an assistant coach for the Toronto Raptors' D-League team, Raptors 905. The team plays its home games in Mississauga, Ontario.

Former North Carolina and NBA star Jerry Stackhouse serves as the team's head coach.

Tyndall was handed a 10-year show-cause penalty in April for NCAA rules violations during his two-year stint as the head coach at USM from 2012-14. He was fired at Tennessee in 2015 after one season there due to the findings of the NCAA probe.

Tyndall has appealed the NCAA sanctions.
