MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The UH Rainbow basketball team has another new assistant coach.

Head Coach Gib Arnold announced Tuesday he has hired Benjy Taylor.

Taylor has been a part of numerous NCAA and NIT squads, while coaching at eight different Division I programs, including the 2000-01 Pepperdine squad that went 22-9 and advanced to the second round of the NIT. Arnold and Taylor coached together on that staff.

Most recently, Taylor was the head coach at Chicago State for three years.

"He just brings another part of our target market in recruiting where now we have a shot at maybe a Chicago player or kid from  the South with the relationships he can bring us," Arnold told Hawaii News Now.
