University of Cincinnati Bearcats Men’s Basketball Head Coach Wes Miller recently announced the hiring of two assistant coaches.

Andre Morgan was named an assistant men's basketball coach at the University of Cincinnati, as Miller announced last Monday.

"We are thrilled to add Andre to our staff here at Cincinnati," Miller said. "Andre is a rising star in this business. He's an outstanding coach, connector and recruiter. He's a high-character addition to our staff and deeply values the development of our players. We welcome Andre to the Bearcats family along with his wife Lynn and their two daughters Amaya and Makenzie."

Morgan comes to Cincinnati after spending the previous three seasons as an assistant coach for Middle Tennessee State University working under Head Coach Nick McDevitt.

"I'm excited to be moving to Cincinnati to be part of the Bearcats basketball family," Morgan said. "I am thankful to Coach Miller for believing in me. I'm ready to get to work.”

Morgan has prior experience working under Miller from his two-year stint at UNCG IN 2017-18. He helped lead the Spartans to a 52-18 record overall and a 29-17 mark in Southern Conference play while advancing to the 2018 NCAA Tournament and 2017 National Invitational Tournament.

He also served one season as the associate head coach at Kentucky Wesleyan. The Panthers posted a 27-4 record in his lone season in Owensboro while winning the Great Midwest Athletic Conference and advancing to the NCAA Division II Midwest Regional.

Morgan also has previous stops at The Citadel and UAB.

On Tuesday, Mike Roberts was also named an assistant men's basketball coach.

"I've known Mike Roberts for over 20 years and he was the first person I called when I was hired at UNCG," Coach Miller says. "For seven years we worked side by side and I'm confident in our ability to do that effectively at Cincinnati. We have different personalities and backgrounds in coaching, but we share the same values. He's an elite coach. He understands what it takes to improve – one day at a time. And most importantly, he genuinely cares for the young people he coaches."

Roberts comes to Cincinnati after spending the previous two seasons as an assistant coach at Indiana University working under Head Coach Archie Miller.

"I'm ecstatic about the opportunity to work with Wes Miller again and be a part of a storied UC program," Roberts says. "It took something special for me to leave my alma mater and I am forever grateful to Archie Miller, Mike Woodson and the entire Bloomington community. I look forward to hitting the ground running at UC and helping this program compete for championships."

Roberts has prior experience working under Miller from his eight-year stint at UNCG from 2011-19. He helped the Spartans reach the 20-win mark in each of his last three seasons, the first time in program history that feat had been achieved. The Spartans recorded an 80-26 overall mark from 2016-19 along with anNCAA Tournament appearance in 2018 and two National Invitational Tournament appearances in 2017 and 2019.
 
He also has previous coaching stops at Rice, California and Texas Tech. 

The Terre Haute, Indiana native was on the IU basketball roster from 2000-05, which appeared in three NCAA Tournaments - including a National Championship appearance in 2002.
