New Mexico State has hired former Kentucky player and staff member Tony Delk as an assistant coach.
"The hiring of coach Tony Delk will give us instant credibility with not only our current players but with recruits that are familiar with all of his NBA accolades and not to mention his national championship at Kentucky," New Mexico State head coach Marvin Menzies said in a press release.
Delk spent the previous two seasons on the staff at Kentucky, most recently serving as the assistant director of basketball operations.
Former Cat Dale Brown announced earlier in the week that he had offered Delk a coaching position on his staff at Clark Atlanta University, a Division II school.
