Indiana adds new assistant to hoops staff
Indiana has made a new additional to its basketball staff.
According to 247Sports, head coach Archie Miller has hired UConn assistant Kenya Hunter to join his staff in Bloomington. The hire comes shortly after former Hoosiers assistant Bruiser Flint accepted a role on John Calipari’s staff at Kentucky.
Hunter has spent the last two seasons as a member of the UConn staff under head coach Dan Hurley, joining the program in 2018. Before arriving in Storrs, Hunter was an assistant coach at Nebraska for five seasons.
This marks the second-straight offseason in which Miller has hired an assistant coach. Last year, Indiana hired Mike Roberts to replace Ed Schilling.
Last year, Indiana finished the season with a 20-12 record, which included a 9-11 mark in B1G play. The Hoosiers were likely to land an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament after winning its first game in the B1G Tournament. However, with the cancellation of the B1G Tournament and March Madness, IU still has not reached the postseason under Miller.
Miller will be entering his fourth season with the program.
