The UNLV men’s basketball program hired Joe Esposito on Friday as special assistant to the head coach.
Esposito, 51, spent the past 11 seasons under Tubby Smith as an assistant at Minnesota, Texas Tech and most recently Memphis.
“Joe brings a wealth of experience to our program,” Rebels coach Marvin Menzies said in a statement. “He will oversee several components of our operation — areas that are vital to our overall continued growth. I have a long-standing relationship with Joe, and I’m confident that his background and knowledge will enhance an already excellent staff.”
