WVU Basketball announced the hiring of Cavel Witter, who will serve as assistant coach as well as video & scout coordinator. Witter has experience with head coach Darian DeVries, working with him at Drake last season.

“We are excited to have Cavel join our staff,” DeVries said in a press release. “As a former player of mine at Creighton and as an assistant coach while at Drake, he brings a great understanding of how we do things on a daily basis. He’s got a really good feel for the game and is able to communicate that knowledge with the players.”

Witter served as assistant coach and chief of operations at Drake and was set to coach at USC Upstate next year. Before Drake, Witter was a graduate manager at Georgia Southern for two years.

In college, Witter played at Creighton for three seasons while DeVries was an assistant under Dana Altman. Witter averaged 8.0 points in 101 career games for the Bluejays. Witter played professional basketball in Portugal during the 2010s.

Witter joins a staff of DeVries (HC), Chester Frazier (AHC), Kory Barnett (assistant), Nick Norton (assistant) and Nelson Hernandez (director of player personnel/recruiting). Director of basketball operations Trent Michaels remains on staff from the previous regime.
