The Arizona State men’s basketball team finalized its coaching staff for the 2022-23 season, head coach Bobby Hurley announced in a release Friday.

Among internal promotions is Jermaine Kimbrough, who will take over as associate head coach. Joining him is Brandon Rosenthal, promoted from director of scouting and player development to assistant coach. They, along with George Aramide, make up Hurley’s bench staff.

Other filled vacancies include Nick Irvin to special assistant to the head coach. Irvin previously was an assistant coach at Western Illinois. Familiar Sun Devil faces Mickey Mitchell and Justin McLean also assume roles for the upcoming season.

Mitchell is not far removed from his days playing for Hurley. From 2017 to 2020, he averaged 3.7 points and 3.8 rebounds in 53 games (22 starts) as a Sun Devil after transferring from Ohio State. He will be ASU’s player personnel/recruiting and analytics special assistant.

Moreover, McLean takes over Rosenthal’s former position as director of scouting and player development. McLean joined ASU as video coordinator in 2015.
