The Mad Ants announced that assistant coaches Norm Richardson and Jhared Simpson will return this season. It will be Richardson’s third in Fort Wayne and Simpson’s second.
They will serve under head coach Steve Gansey and general manager Brian Levy, who both signed multi-year contracts in the off-season.
Director of basketball operations Chris Taylor will also return for a second season in Fort Wayne, which opens its season Nov. 2 at Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Ben Resner will serve as video coordinator. He has experience with the Greensboro Swarm and Canton Charge, and was the head coach of the Cape Breton Highlanders of the National Basketball League in Canada. Will Dunn, a former player at the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota), will serve as basketball operations intern.
“The additions of Ben and Will continue the great lineage of coaches in Fort Wayne over the past several seasons,” Levy said. “Both are dedicated and passionate about the game of basketball and helping our players improve. They will fit in very nicely with the staff we have returning.”
