“The Blue Coats are a major part of the organizational development system, and I’m honored to take on this role in the program,” Karangwa said. “We are fortunate to have the leadership of both Jameer Nelson and Coby Karl in Delaware and I’m looking forward to working closely with them to grow our players and play exciting basketball at Chase Fieldhouse.”
