Oats has served as head coach of the Bulls since the 2015-16 season, compiling a 92-42 record.  In those four seasons, Oats led UB to two MAC regular season championships ('17-'18, '18-'19), a pair MAC Tournament Championships ('15-'16, '17-'18), and two NCAA Tournament berths ('15-'16, '17-'18).  The Bulls are coming off a historic regular season in 2018-19, going 28-3 and 16-2 in conference en route to a number-one seed in the ongoing MAC Tournament.  The team is currently awaiting the winner of Kent State and Central Michigan, to see who they will face in the MAC Semi-Finals tomorrow night.
