It was announced on Friday per Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports that Matt McCall would hire Rasheed Davis and Pete Gash as assistants at Massachusetts. The new head coach has been on the recruiting trail and lurking around the transfer market lately; now he’s making additions to his coaching staff. Davis was an assistant at Manhattan for 3 seasons before working with Will Wade at VCU last year. Now with the Minutemen, he’ll have some experience working within the league. Gash worked with Matt McCall at Chattanooga, Florida, and Florida Atlantic, so he’s got quite the history with Massachusetts’ new head coach.
UMass’ Matt McCall will hire both Rasheen Davis and Pete Gash as assistants, per a source. Davis was at VCU last year. Gash was at UTC.
