Walker joins Cal staff

According to a report by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, California has hired Chris Walker as the third assistant coach under new head men’s basketball coach Wyking Jones, joining associate head coach Tim O’Toole and Los Angeles Lakers assistant Theo Robertson, who will join the program after the conclusion of the NBA season.

Walker, 47, has deep ties to Jones, having coached the Bears’ new head coach at Loyola Marymount during his first college coaching gig, and then helping Jones get an assistant job at New Mexico, a job he vacated when he headed to Villanova in 2007.

Walker was also the associate head coach at Pepperdine from 1999-2000, just before Jones arrived in Malibu for his second assistant job from 2002-06.
