May 10, 2016

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Tubby Smith has filled out his Memphis coaching staff by hiring four of his assistants from Texas Tech.

Memphis announced Tuesday that Smith has added Pooh Williamson, Joe Esposito, Saul Smith, and Zo Goodson.

Smith said in a statement that he put together a staff he's familiar with to bring continuity to help recruit the players that fit his system and style.

Williamson, Esposito, and Smith will be assistant coaches with Smith. Goodson will be the director of basketball operations, while Smith is keeping Keelon Lawson from former coach Josh Pastner's staff as director of player development.


Memphis hired Smith away from Texas Tech to be the Tigers' new coach last month after Pastner left for Georgia Tech.
