Auburn hires Wes Flanigan as men’s basketball assistant
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn has hired former Arkansas-Little Rock head basketball coach Wes Flanigan as an assistant.
Tigers coach Bruce Pearl announced the hiring of the ex-Auburn point guard on Monday.
Flanigan was a four-year starter at Auburn from 1993-97 and led the Southeastern Conference in assists as a junior.
He was fired from Arkansas-Little Rock in March after two seasons following a 7-25 season that set a program-record for losses in a season.
Flanigan was an assistant under Greg Beard for the 2015-16 team that went 30-5 and won its first outright Sun Belt Conference title.
He has also worked on the staffs at UAB, Nebraska and Mississippi State.
