Hughey, a former Florida State assistant coach, will be introduced during a press conference at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Carl Lewis Auditorium in the Athletics/Alumni Center. All fans and media are invited to attend the press conference.

Hughey will become the seventh head coach in program history. He comes to the program after being on six consecutive NCAA tournament coaching staffs at Florida State, Texas, Rutgers and UCF. He has helped lead five schools to seven postseason appearances in 10 years as a Division I coach.

“As we went through this coaching search, we spoke with many different people who knew Hughey well, on and off the court. Coach Hughey’s energy, excitement and commitment to his student athletes were apparent from our very first meeting,” Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades said. “He is one of the rising stars in this industry, and we’re excited to have him join our University of Houston Athletics family.”
