King elevated on Marshall hoops staff
After spending two seasons as a graduate assistant at Marshall, Josh King has been promoted to a full-time assistant basketball coach under coach Tom Herrion.
He replaces Jorge Fernandez, who left the staff in May, citing family reasons.
King, who played for East Carolina and Division II Eckerd, has coached at Massachusetts-Lowell and Vassar. He helped with day-to-day operations as he pursued his master's degree in adult technical education.
Reserve big man J.P. Kambola will switch to No. 31. Junior-college signee Elijah Pittman will take No. 24.
