·1 min read

A former Auburn basketball player and graduate assistant has landed a new role.

K.T. Harrell, who played for Auburn from 2013-15 after transferring from Virginia, has landed a spot at Florida Atlantic University as its new Director of Basketball Operations. According to a press release from the Owls, Harrell is expected to help the team with “assisting in scouting and personnel reports of opponents” and “contributing to player development”.

Harrell played his first few seasons at Virginia, where he averaged around 20 minutes per game in both his seasons as a Cavelier. His shining seasons during his playing career came as a Tiger, however, where he was named to the All-SEC second team and the SEC Tournament first team in 2014. He averaged 18.5 points per game and shot 45.3 percent from the field during that successful senior year.

After his career at Auburn, Harrell played basketball for four years in Belgium, Turkey and Italy. He recently spent time as a graduate assistant for the Auburn Tigers for the last two seasons.
