Marquette will add former UConn assistant Dwayne Killings to its staff, per an announcement from Marquette Athletics. He will fill the assistant coaching job left vacant by Chris Carrawell’s departure to Duke.

“He is a great addition who will add tremendous value to our players, staff and program as a whole,” Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski.  “This is an exciting time for our program.”

Killings has been at Connecticut since July 2016. While in Storrs, the Huskies went 30-35 and missed the NCAA Tournament both years.

The Amherst, Massachusetts, native has previously held coaching positions at Temple and Boston University. At Temple, Killings helped lead the Owls to three NCAA Tournament appearances in five years from 2011-2015

This is the second consecutive year that Marquette has made a change in its coaching staff. Following departures from director of basketball operations Justin Gainey and director of player personnel Travis Diener, Marquette brought in Rob Judson as special assistant to the head coach and shifted some of Gainey’s duties to Jake Presutti.
