Mike Roberts, who was an assistant coach at Rice University for the past four years, will join UNC Greensboro's staff as associate head coach.
Roberts previously worked on head coach Ben Braun's staff at Cal for two years and at Rice played a role in the Owls building a foundation for the program's future success.
Rice improved each year during Roberts' tenure, marked by a 19-16 record and a postseason appearance this past season.
"I really enjoyed the past four years at Rice and the past six years working under Coach Braun," Roberts said. "Coach Braun has played a major role in my development as a coach and mentor to young men and I consider him to be a dear friend.
"I was able to grow professionally and made many lifelong friends during my time at Rice. I wish the program nothing but the best moving forward and I am excited about the new opportunities ahead at UNCG."
Braun said, "Mike has been a very valuable addition to our basketball program over the past four years. He will have a great opportunity as the associate head coach at UNCG. I believe Mike has a very bright future in college coaching. Our staff and players have appreciated his dedication and wish him nothing but success."
