“I’m thrilled to be bringing Jesse aboard here,” said Engles. “He brings a tremendous track-record as a recruiter as well as being a great in-game tactician. Jesse’s knowledge and experience of the Ivy League from his time at Brown and his New York City roots will be a tremendous asset to the program.”
Columbia head men’s basketball coach Jim Engles has hired Jesse Agel as assistant coach. Agel, a New York City native and graduate of Stuyvesant High School, spent the last three seasons at NJIT on Engle’s staff and was the head coach of Brown University from 2008-12.
