Coyotes Add Assistant

South Dakota head women’s basketball coach Amy Williams has announced the hiring of Joshua Hutchinson as assistant coach.

 

Hutchinson served as an assistant coach at American University the past three seasons, helping the Eagles to two Patriot League regular season titles and a WNIT berth in 2012.  While at American, his duties included working primarily with the team’s post players, recruiting potential student-athletes, serving as the academic liaison and overseeing off-season development programs.

“We are extremely pleased to be adding Josh Hutchinson to our women’s basketball family,” Williams said.  “He will be an outstanding addition to our coaching staff with his tireless work ethic, strong recruiting reputation and unwavering commitment to serving student-athletes.”

Prior to his work at American University, Hutchinson served as the head varsity boy’s coach at Christian Academy of Indiana in New Albany, Ind., from 2008-10.  From 2004-08, Hutchinson worked as the assistant varsity boy’s coach at national powerhouse Montrose Christian School in Rockville, Md., where he coached current NBA players Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Greivis Vasquez of the Sacramento Kings.  Hutchinson also spent the 2006-07 season at Towson University as the administrative assistant for the men’s basketball program.

Hutchinson is a 2004 graduate of Messiah in Grantham, Pa., where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He was a four-year letter winner on the basketball team, and served as the team captain as a senior.  He and his wife, Christina, have an 18-month old son, Niko.
