Hopkins takes UW job

The Huskies have found a men’s basketball coach and hired Mike Hopkins, who had been an assistant the past 22 years at Syracuse.

“I’m extremely excited to welcome Mike and his family to Seattle,” UW athletic director Jen Cohen said in a statement released by the school. “His resume and reputation within the basketball community made him stand out to us, but ultimately it was his vision for Washington, his passion for teaching and developing student-athletes and his close alignment with the core values of our institution and department that made it more than clear that he was the right fit for us.”

Hopkins has agreed to a six-year deal with the Huskies, reports ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
