Citadel basketball head coach Chuck Driesell announced on Monday that Justin Argenal and Zavier Anderson have been added to his staff for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
Argenal replaces Quinton Ferrell as assistant coach. Ferrell accepted the same position at Army. Meanwhile, Anderson will fill the vacancy left by Pat Rogers, who returned to his alma mater, Notre Dame, as video coordinator.
Argenal rejoins Driesell’s Citadel staff after spending the last two seasons as director of basketball operations at Louisiana Tech under head coach Michael White.
Prior to his first stint at The Citadel in 2010-11, when he served as the Dogs’ director of basketball operations, Argenal was a graduate assistant at the University of Mississippi.
“Justin did a great job his first time here on our staff,” said Driesell. “He has proven to be a very successful coach as he excelled the last two seasons at Louisiana Tech. I am excited to have him back on staff as he brings great energy and passion for the game and The Citadel.”
Anderson assumes the director of basketball operations role on Driesell’s staff. Anderson, a 2011 graduate of Clemson, comes to The Citadel after spending the past two seasons as a graduate assistant under Shaka Smart at Virginia Commonwealth.
Anderson was part of a VCU staff that advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons.
“Zavier is a former college basketball player who brings experience and a wealth of knowledge to our program,” added Driesell. “His two years at VCU will serve him well as the director of basketball operations at The Citadel.”
