Head Coach Tim Miles tweet made the announcement, the Husker Hoops team has found their new assistant to replace Ben Johnson who left for Minnesota. Miles tabbed lead Georgetown Assistant, Kenya Hunter for the role. Hunter has been an assistant at Georgetown since 2007 and is described as being instrumental to Georgetown's success in his time there in both offensive and defensive game planning. He also has extensive recruiting ties in the North Carolina area.
In his time at Georgetown he helped develop top ten NBA picks Roy Hibbert, Greg Monroe and Otto Porter who is expected to be a top five pick in this year's draft. The Hoyas have also won two Big East titles and made NCAA appearances in five of his six seasons there. Hunter also has experience in the ACC with two stints at NC State as well as stints at Xavier and Duquesne.
On the surface, the Miles appears to have scored a major coup lurring a top assistant from a team that was a #2 seed in this years NCAA tournament to Nebraska. That doesn't happen very often. While it doesn't appear as though Hunter will be bringing any recruits with him for this current season, but the Huskers should benefit from his extensive experience and recruiting ties. Hunter will join the Husker staff June 17.
