Basketball strength and conditioning coach Randy Flores will not return to Memphis next season, he confirmed to The Daily Memphian on Wednesday. 

Flores was hired by former Tiger coach Tubby Smith in 2016. He was a graduate assistant at Texas Tech before coming to Memphis. 

Coach Penny Hardaway will look to replace him with someone with whom he is familiar. The new coach will work with a highly ranked freshman class that comes on campus this summer.
