Nebraska basketball staffer Ali Farokhmanesh is headed back to the Missouri Valley Conference.
Thursday reports of Nebraska’s director of player relations and development heading to Drake became reality Friday, as the Huskers made Farokhmanesh’s hiring as an assistant coach official with a news release.
Farokhmanesh will be the third assistant on Niko Medved’s new staff at Drake, joining Dave Thorson and JR Blount. It will be the former Northern Iowa star’s first on-the-court coaching job.
Medved, a former assistant to Tim Miles at Colorado State, was hired by Drake May 26 after a four-year stint at Furman.
