Hunter was the longest-tenured assistant on John Thompson III’s staff, and helped Georgetown to a pair of Big East titles (2008 and 2013), five 20-win seasons and five NCAA Tournament bids over the last six years.
“I’m really excited to add Kenya Hunter to our staff,” Miles said. “He brings a wealth of experience in many areas which will help the Huskers reach our goals. Through my discussions with Kenya, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the game and his feel for the game, and I believe his extensive network of contacts will help us expand our recruiting boundaries.”
