Former Arizona State assistant coach Anthony Coleman is coming back to Tempe after spending one season at Colorado, according to basketball analyst Jeff Goodman.
Coleman was hired by coach Bobby Hurley in 2016 but he left after the 2018-19 campaign to stay within the conference and work under CU coach Tad Boyle with the Buffaloes. Coleman’s return comes after Hurley let go former assistant Rasheen Davis.

Coleman has a standout resume from his time at ASU, and at his stops prior to working with the Sun Devil staff. A former sports marketing manager at Adidas, Coleman helped Hurley recruit.
The assistant aided the group in snagging impactful players such as Taeshon Cherry, Kimani Lawrence, Romello White, and current Oklahoma City Thunder guard Luguentz Dort.
Coleman has served other various college basketball roles, such as working as the 2012-13 Director of Basketball Operations at USC.
Aside from just recruiting, the Westminster, CA native helped in the progression of ASU’s post players in recent seasons.
This will be a primary area to try and enhance for the Sun Devils entering next year, as a guard-heavy group looks to find its presence inside with players like sophomore forward Jalen Graham and recent Lee College transfer Chris Osten.
