Fired 15 games into DePaul's 2010 basketball season, former head coach Jerry Wainwright is newly employed. He'll serve as a full-time assistant at Fresno State University under new head coach Rodney Terry.

Terry was previously an assistant under Wainwright at UNC-Wilmington and Richmond, and became Fresno's new head coach in April.

Since his 2010 firing 64-year-old Wainwright has undergone treatment for prostate cancer while contributing on college basketball radio.

In four and a half seasons at DePaul he lead the Blue Demons to a 60-95 record and one NIT appearance.

The 2011-2012 season will be FSU's first in the Mountain West Conference. The Bulldogs return all but one player - starting forward Nedljko Golubovic - to their 14-17 team.

One final note: Outgoing Fresno assistant Lee Moon played at UNC-Wilmington under Wainwright and Terry; there must be some kind of connection there.
