Former North Carolina basketball player Hubert Davis was announced today as Roy Williams’ newest assistant coach.

Davis fills the void left by Jerod Haase as he took the head coaching job at Alabama-Birmingham last month.

Davis, who spent 12 years in the NBA scoring more than 5,500 career points, played at UNC from 1988-1992. He holds the record for career three-point percentage with .435. As a senior he was named second team All-ACC for his 21.4 points per game performance including a career high 35 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

After graduation he was drafted in the first round of the 1992 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks where he spent the first four seasons of his NBA career.

He played his final games in the NBA with the New Jersey Nets in the 2003-04 season. Before being added on to Roy Williams’ staff Davis worked with ESPN as a college basketball analyst for seven years.
