Tennessee coach Rick Barnes hires Justin Gainey as assistant

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee coach Rick Barnes has hired veteran Justin Gainey as an assistant coach to fill out his staff.

Barnes announced the hiring Monday and called Gainey a proven national recruiter.

"I coached against Justin when he was the point guard at N.C. State," Barnes said. "He was an incredibly tough competitor then, and he has that same tenacity now as a coach. Justin has a passion for on-court player development that fits well with our staff. Our players are going to love working with him to grow their game.
