Hawaii men’s basketball coach Gib Arnold filled one of the holes in his coaching staff with the hire of Senque Carey on Tuesday.
Carey, a former assistant coach at Loyola Marymount and Fresno State, is expected to aid the Rainbow Warriors’ recruiting efforts. Carey, 34, is the team’s new recruiting coordinator and will oversee UH’s point guards for the 2014-15 season.
“Looking forward to working with the staff and the administration,” Carey said.
He filled the opening created when Scott Fisher left the program earlier this summer.
Arnold gave this statement to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser about Carey: “Thrilled to have Senque Carey join our staff. He has a great reputation as a recruiter and his ability to develop point guards. I have known Senque a long time and even recruited him a bit back in the day. I have been impressed by his work as an Assistant Coach. He recruited Paul George and Greg Smith two NBA players to Fresno. He has a great work ethic and major recruiting ties around the country. He will be relentless in his recruiting and his dedication to the University of Hawaii. We are very fortunate to have him join our staff.”
UH has yet to fill its opening for director of basketball operations.
