Allen Edwards has made his first official staff hire as a Division 1 head coach; by bringing Jermaine Kimbrough to Laramie as an assistant coach from the University of Nevada in Reno where he held the same position.
Kimbrough has over 10 seasons of coaching and basketball operations experience with previous stops at Howard College, Cleveland State and U Mass. Edwards was looking for a well-rounded coach saying:
My biggest point of emphasis with hiring this assistant position was to find a well-balanced guy. I didn’t want a coach that just specialized in one particular thing. I wanted a guy that’s good on the floor, good with the student-athletes, good with recruiting and good with scouting. I think Jermaine has shown the capability to excel in all those areas, so we are excited to welcome him to the Cowboy basketball family.
One assistant spot remains open on Edward’s staff and his second hire is expected to be announced soon. You can read the official UW release here: Edwards Hires Kimbrough as Cowboy Assistant Coach – University of Wyoming Official Athletic Site.
