Former Cal assistant Yann Hufnagel has reached an agreement to join Eric Musselman's staff at Nevada, a source told CBS Sports on Friday.
Former Cal assistant Yann Hufnagel has reached an agreement to join Eric Musselman’s staff at Nevada, a source told CBS Sports on Friday.
Hufnagel spent much of the past decade establishing himself as one of the nation's best young recruiters at Harvard, Vanderbilt and then at California, where he helped Cuonzo Martin secure a 2015 recruiting class highlighted by a pair of five-star prospects -- namely Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb. But the Cornell graduate resigned from Cal earlier this week, less than a month after the school disclosed that a female reporter had accused him of sexual harassment, which are allegations Hufnagel has publicly denied.
Hufnagel initially said he would appeal to keep his job. But he dropped the appeal this week because, a source said, he did not want to further be a distraction. Meanwhile, a source told CBS Sports, Hufnagel was approached about multiple jobs. But he ultimately decided to join the staff at Nevada -- where Musselman inherited a nine-win team, recruited and enrolled eventual MWC Freshman of the Year Cameron Oliver, and managed to win 24 games and the CBI title in his first season as a Division I head coach
LSU assistant Ronald Dupree is also joining Nevada's staff, a source told CBS Sports. He and Musselman worked together at LSU before Musselman got the Nevada job.
