Oakland adds former Drexel assistant Brandon Weems to coaching staff
Weems updated his Twitter and Facebook pages to reflect his new job status Monday evening.
High Major Scoop reported the move Monday as well.
Prior to his time at Drexel, Weems served as an assistant director of basketball operations and a graduate assistant under John Calipari at Kentucky.
A native of Akron, Ohio, Weems was an All-American point guard at Division II Walsh (Ohio) University.
Reportedly, Weems is a former high school teammate of LeBron James from St. Vincent-St. Mary's in Akron and maintains a close relationship with the NBA superstar.
After three seasons at Kentucky, Weems accepted the assistant position at Drexel for the 2012-13 season.
Weems' addition to Kampe's staff was necessitated with former associate coach Jeff Tungate's ascension to the head women's position following the firing of Beckie Francis in June. Saddi Washington was then promoted to the associate coaching position, replacing Tungate.
