Former Penn State Hoops Assistant Coach Kevin Freeman To Join UConn Staff

Penn State men’s basketball assistant coach Kevin Freeman has moved to UConn to join Dan Hurley’s coaching staff, the university announced Wednesday.

Freeman was a part of Pat Chambers’ locker room since June 2018, and his two seasons in State College were nothing if not eventful. Penn State went from an 0-10 conference start during the 2018-19 season to a March Madness lock in 2019-20, if not for coronavirus pandemic.

The move to Storrs, Connecticut will be Freeman’s third stint as a Husky. The Springfield, Massachusetts native played for UConn between 1995 and 2000, before becoming the director of basketball administration for the program for seven years prior to his move to Penn State.

His previous management stint at UConn included the famous 2014 championship run, led by Shabazz Napier.

Freeman will join the Huskies during a rebuilding process in central Connecticut. Since their 2014 championship, UConn has only made the NCAA Tournament on one occasion, where it fell to Kansas in the 2016 second round.
