DePaul hires Bill Courtney as assistant coach

Courtney replaces former associate head coach Rick Carter

NCAA Basketball: Cornell at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Dave Leitao and the DePaul Blue Demons have filled the vacancy on their bench left by Rick Carter’s resignation.

Per FanRag’s Jon Rothstein, former Cornell head coach Bill Courtney is joining Leitao’s staff.

Prior to Courtney’s time at Cornell (60-113 in six seasons with the Big Red), he worked on Leitao’s staff at Virginia.

This is Courtney’s second stint as a Big East assistant coach, as he served on Tim Welch’s staff at Providence from 2005-06.

There is no word yet if Courtney will be the associate head coach, or just an assistant coach.
