Jimmy Langhurst named to Robert Morris basketball staff
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.”
