Jimmy Langhurst was a standout guard at Robert Morris from 2006-10.

RMU men’s basketball coach Andy Toole announced Thursday that Langhurst will join his staff as director of basketball operations.

He replaces Trey Woodall, who was elevated to assistant coach.

“I’ve kept a close eye on Jimmy since he concluded his playing career with the Colonials and have been impressed with how well he’s been an integral part of successful staffs the last few years,” Toole said in a release. “He was part of a winning culture within our program as a student-athlete, and I’m confident that he will bring that aspect to his alma mater.”

Langhurst is a native of Willard, Ohio. He spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, N.Y.

Langhurst served as an assistant coach with IUP during the 2014-15 campaign.

In four years with the Colonials, Langhurst appeared in 90 games, earning 74 starts. He finished with 781 career points, converting 40.6 percent (157 for 387) of his attempts from beyond the arc and 84 percent (142 for 169) at the free-throw line.

He was a two-time captain and was part of the team that appeared in the 2008 National Invitation Tournament (NIT) and a pair of NCAA Tournaments (2009, 2010).

“We’re glad to have him back,” Toole said. “We’re excited what he’ll bring to the program.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
