Blog: UGA set to hire assistant men’s basketball coach

Georgia is close to announcing the hire of a new men’s basketball assistant.

Samford assistant Yasir Rosemond certainly appears to be the guy.

Here’s what he tweeted this afternoon with an Instagram photo.

Rosemond, 37 is an Atlanta native who should have connections in state for recruiting.

He spent two seasons at Samford and two before that at Seattle University. He also was an assistant at Oregon where he also played before transferring to Seattle Pacific for his senior year.

No announcement on the hire is expected today.
