College basketball coaching has always been a side job for Donny Tuley, but after 32 years as Capitol Hill High School's head boys coach, he has decided to pursue college basketball full time.

With 530 career wins, Tuley has accepted the head coaching job at Seminole State College, the school announced Monday.

“We are excited about the addition of Coach Tuley to our staff, Seminole State College president Jim Utterback said. “He brings with him a legacy of earned respect and demonstrated integrity that is the hallmark of the type of athletic programs we want at Seminole State College.”

While serving as the Capitol Hill head coach, Tuley has worked for 13 seasons at the college level as an assistant at Redlands Community College in El Reno. He most recently served one season on the staff at Oklahoma City University.

“I am excited to assume the position of head men's basketball coach at Seminole State College,” Tuley said. “I look forward to building on the tradition of success of the athletic programs at SSC.”
