Vanderbilt assistant coach Yanni Hufnagel confirmed to me in a text Sunday night that he has been hired to complete new Cal coach Cuonzo Martin’s staff.
The news was first reported by ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman via twitter.
Hufnagel spent the past season at Vanderbilt, where he was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. Previously, he was at Harvarad for four seasons. He got his coaching start as a graduate assistant at Oklahoma, during which time he assisted in the development of Blake Griffin.
Hufnagel also worked a basketball operations intern with the New Jersey Nets during his time at a grad student at Oklahoma. He has an undergrad degree from Cornell.
