Kohn Named Director Of Basketball Operations

TAMPA, Fla. – The University of South Florida men's basketball program has announced the hiring of former Bull standout Reggie Kohn as Director of Men's Basketball Operations, head coach Robert McCullum announced Tuesday afternoon.

"We are elated to add Reggie to the Bulls' staff," McCullum said. "He brings enthusiasm, experience and a strong work ethic back to his alma mater, and his desire to get into coaching at the collegiate level makes him a perfect fit at USF.

"In the three years since his graduation, I have really been impressed by his commitment and loyalty to USF," McCullum added. "He has brought his teams at Lake Howell to our team camp and has also done everything possible to aid us in our recruiting efforts regarding his players."

Kohn was a four-year starter and letterwinner for the Bulls who graduated following the 2002-03 campaign. He is USF's all-time leader in assists (632) and 3-point field goals (252) and his 1,024 career points ranks him 15th on the program's all-time scoring list. He earned a degree in physical education in 2003 after helping guide the Bulls to a pair of National Invitation Tournament appearances (2000, 2002).

"I am excited about the opportunity to return to USF," Kohn said. "I am interested in becoming involved with coaching at the collegiate level and I couldn't think of a better place to start than my alma mater."

Kohn has spent the last three years at Lake Howell High School (also alma mater), serving as the head boys' basketball coach and teaching as well. He directed the program to three state tournament appearances, including a runner-up finish (2003-04) and a pair of final four trips. The team claimed the district title in each of his three seasons and compiled an overall record of 84-16 during his tenure.

Kohn's squad posted a 28-5 record in 2005-06, earning him state and district coach of the year accolades. The roster featured the 5-A Mr. Basketball and also included a total of two all-state and three all-conference performers.

Kohn replaces Scott Thompson, who resigned in April after serving in the position the previous three seasons.
