Shawn Forrest named assistant coach for Jankovich at SMU
DALLAS (AP) Shawn Forrest has been named an assistant basketball coach at SMU, his third school since the end of last season.
Mustangs coach Tim Jankovich announced Forrest's hiring Tuesday.
Forrest spent the past three seasons as an assistant at Western Kentucky before head coach Ray Harper resigned. Forrest was named a UTSA assistant in May, but two weeks later left for Louisiana Tech before the unexpected opening at SMU.
Jankovich was SMU's associate head coach before the abrupt resignation last month of Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown. Forrest fills the open assistant spot created on the staff when Jankovich was promoted to head coach.
Before Western Kentucky, Forrest was an assistant coach at Louisiana-Lafayette, North Texas, Arkansas State and Florida A&M.
