Oleksiak is Back

Former Spartan guard Kevin Oleksiak has been added to the UNCG coaching staff as Director of Basketball Operations. This confirms suspicions that many UNCG fans had after seeing KO on the Spartan bench last season.

Oleksiak played part of last season in France before returning to the United States. He sat in on some of the team’s practices and games as a volunteer in the latter part of the season.

Oleksiak fills an opening left by Ben Thompson, who took an assistant coaching position at D2 St. Leo University.
