  • Assistants and Staff

    As Wes Miller tries to round out his roster, he is simultaneously needing to hire his assistants and other staff. Hopefully we will here something more definitive soon - maybe this week.

    Potential candidates:
    - Mike Roberts (named Assistant AD for Basketball Administration at IU after spending the last two seasons as an assistant at his alma mater under Archie Miller; previously the associate head coach at UNCG): https://iuhoosiers.com/sports/mens-b...e-roberts/2770
    - Andre Morgan (assistant coach at Middle Tennessee after spending two seasons at UNCG - Chad Brendel mentioned him on the latest podcast put out by BCJ last night): https://goblueraiders.com/sports/men...re-morgan/1776
    - Potential UC alums? DerMarr Johnson would seem to have the edge over James White, but not sure either has the resume of a bench assistant at this point but we'll see...
    - Others?

    - Chris LePore (current UNCG assistant has been openly liking and retweeting UC content, following UC players on Twitter since Miller was hired is presumably coming over to UC but potentially in an ops / non-coaching role ... hopefully Wes can fill out the three assistants without needing to escalate him; I believe Tim Morris was expected to be in a non-coaching role at UC then ultimately filled the #3 assistant spot when Brannen did not land his other target(s): https://uncgspartans.com/staff-direc...hris-lepore/63

    - Strength coach?

    My speculation is that assistants are a lot more important than most of us realize. CWM should hire some good ones asap.

        Does the BB coach hire strength and conditioning coach? I thought there is head strength coach and a staff. Bostic is on staff, but he works with other sports than BB.
        Red and Black are more of an Attitude than merely a color combination.

        Intimidate! Dominate! Celebrate!

          I’d love to see Eric Hicks on the staff in any capacity. I think his attitude and tenacity would make a huge impact on our program.

              LePore is listed in the official UC staff directory as a "Sports Program Associate," confirming he was not hired as a bench assistant.

              Andre Morgan from Middle Tennessee, mentioned above, is already listed in the directory and is listed as an "Asst Coach"

              Unclear if anyone from the prior staff is being retained, as all but Brannen (including Dwyer who was hired by Loyola) are still listed

                    Er ic Hicks could teach rebounding. We haven't had too many better rebounders than him in the past 15-20 years

                        Somebody needs to update the roster at gobearcats.com, the assistants aren't listed, and they still have Eason on the roster. Get on the ball, people.
