BOSTON (AP) - Boston College has hired former Ohio University coach Jim Christian to lead its men's basketball team.

Christian replaces Steve Donahue, who was fired after four seasons without an NCAA tournament berth.

Christian has led the Bobcats to a 49-22 record in two seasons. Before that, he spent 10 years at Texas Christian and Kent State. In all, he has led his teams to eight postseason berths in 12 years.

Christian is the Mid-American Conference's all-time leader in winning percentage.
