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.”

How (moreso why) is Jon Rothstein verified?

This is big for Nebraska. He brings a lot of experience in perhaps the most fertile recruiting grounds in the country. DC, MD, & Northern VA regularly put out not just good basketball talent, but ELITE basketball talent. Of course they have to be coached up but solid move for the Husker.

Looks like a great hire for Miles, who has done nothing but impress since his first day here. Things are looking very bright for the Husker hoops program.
