It seems a replacement plan for C.J. Lee is starting to take shape.
Michigan announced in a statement on Friday that the basketball program has named former Wolverine Chris Hunter its new Director of Player Personnel.
"It is always great to have a Michigan alum on staff and we are looking forward to Chris Hunter's return to Michigan Basketball in this new role," said Michigan coach John Beilein in a statement. "With Chris's experience as a former student-athlete, his degree from the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, as well as his professional playing experience, we know he will bring great talent and expertise to our program. We are excited to have Chris and his family back in Ann Arbor."
Hunter was a captain on the basketball team during the 2005-06 and was a pivotal member of the 2004 NIT Championship and the 2006 NIT runner-up squads. He played in 105 career games and had 27 starts while averaging 7-points per game and 3.5 rebounds.
"I look forward to assisting the student athletes in having a valuable and productive academic experience," said Hunter in a statement. "I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to advance the Michigan Basketball program everyday through hard work and diligence.
