UConn men’s basketball assistant coach Kenya Hunter is leaving the school for an assistant coaching job at Indiana, according to Jon Rothstein.

Hunter will Archie Miller’s staff, who played at NC State when Hunter was director of basketball operations there.

The deal has not yet been announced officially, but it would mark the second coaching change of the offseason for the Huskies after Mike Rehfeldt took over the strength and conditioning post for Sal Alosi in July.

In his three years with the school, Hunter secured commitments from Javonte Brown and top-50 shooting guard Jordan Hawkins. In addition to his recruiting work, he was the Huskies big man coach, working to improve upon an area of weakness in the guard-heavy Storrs side.

Prior to coming to UConn in 2018, he spent time at Nebraska, Georgetown, Xavier, Duquesne and NC State.

UConn’s RJ Cole wished Hunter well on Twitter following the news.
