07/12/2017 07:07 PM

Western Kentucky Men’s Basketball coach Rick Stansbury announced Wednesday the addition of Marc Hsu and Nikita Johnson to the Hilltopper coaching staff.

“We’re excited to have Marc and Nikita join our program,” Stansbury said. “I’ve known Nikita for a long time, back from his days in junior college and his years at LSU. He’s an extremely hard worker, but most importantly, he’s a quality person. I’ve known Marc for several years, and he’s worked for individuals that I have the utmost respect for. I do know from my dealings with him that he’s a tireless worker.”

Hsu comes to Bowling Green with coaching experience at New Mexico and New Mexico State. He also spent three seasons at CSU Bakersfield and helped earn the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament berth since transitioning to Division I.

Hsu received his degree in business administration with a minor in sports science from Cabrini College.

Johnson spent the last four seasons at Stetson and has more than 30 years of coaching experience to WKU.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” Johnson said. “Coach Stansbury is someone I’ve known for almost 30 years. I have great respect for him, and he’s someone I consider to be one of the top coaches in the country. He’s great in the community, with the university and on the court with the kids. He’s a relentless worker and someone I actually dreamed about having the opportunity to work with.”
