Hubert Davis was named an assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of North Carolina, the school he helped to the 1991 Final Four.
Davis, who played 12 seasons in the National Basketball Association and worked the last seven as an analyst on ESPN, was hired to replace Jerod Haase, the Chapel Hill, North Carolina- based school said on its website. Haase left in March to become the head coach at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Davis, 41, played at the university from 1988-92, when the Tar Heels went 102-37, twice winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The school reached the semifinals of the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament in 1991, losing 79-73 to the University of Kansas.
Davis, 41, was a first-round draft pick of the New York Knicks in 1992. He played with the Knicks for four seasons and also had stints with the Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards, Detroit Pistons and New Jersey Nets, averaging 8.2 points and 1.7 assists per game for his career.
