New Mexico's assistant coach vacancy was filled yesterday with the addition of Alan Huss. Huss was the head coach of La Lumiere School (prep school in Indiana) for four years where he managed an impressive 86-22 record. Current Lobo Obij Aget and former Lobo Darington Hobson both played at La Lumiere.
"I'm extremely excited to coach at New Mexico with Coach Neal," Huss said. "It's an incredible opportunity as a coach to join the Lobos, and I couldn't be happier. I've known Coach Neal for a decade, and to be able to join his staff is really exciting. It's a national program with a great fan base, and I can't wait to help the program continue to compete for championships."
There has also been some speculation that Huss may bring along a friend. La Lumiere small forward Sam Logwood has a scheduled a recruiting visit to UNM for this weekend. There were early reports that the former Auburn Tiger recruit would follow Huss to UNM but recent reports have tempered expectations; for now it's just a recruiting visit.
In any event, it is exciting news. Huss has proven he knows what it takes to win and should be an excellent addition to the Lobo's coaching staff. Before La Lumiere, Huss was the head coach at Culver Military Academy in Culver, Ind. where he set the school record for wins in each of his final two seasons.
Per Rivals, Logwood is a 3-star recruit and No. 150 overall in the Class of 2014. Logwood is a 6-foot-6 forward described as very athletic by ESPN's Jeff Goodman. If he chose UNM, Logwood would be eligible to play immediately under UNM's last remaining scholarship.
