The Arizona State Sun Devils men’s basketball program has added Jermaine Kimbrough of Loyola-Chicago to the team staff as an assistant coach.

Kimbrough was reportedly added to the staff last Thursday, but the official statement from the school was released on Wednesday.

The new ASU assistant coach comes from a winning culture with Loyola-Chicago, helping reach the Sweet 16 last season after making a Final Four run before he arrived.

He also coached at Wyoming for three years, helping the team to two 20-win seasons.

“He brings a wealth of experience and recent success with the outstanding run of Loyola Chicago in this year’s NCAA Tournament,” Hurley said in the release. “Jermaine brings tremendous value in all areas and will play a key role in the advancement of Arizona State Basketball,” Hurley said in the release.

Kimbrough moved right into coaching after his playing career ended following two seasons with Virginia Tech from 1998-2000.

His coaching career also took him to Cleveland State, Massachusetts and Nevada, with his longest stint being a nine-year role as an assistant coach at Cleveland State.
