University of Minnesota head men’s basketball coach Richard Pitino today announced that Josh Adel, formerly the Assistant Director of Basketball Operations, has been promoted to Director of Basketball Operations. Adel takes over for Steve Goodson who recently accepted an administrative/coaching position at Rancho Solano Prep School in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Adel is in his first year at Minnesota after spending last season with Coach Pitino at Florida International. He previously spent five years with the Florida Gators basketball program.
He began his stint with the Gators in 2007 and was promoted to head manager in August of 2009. As head manager, Adel was responsible for organizing the annual Gator Coaches Clinic. He also attended practices and assisted with the Florida scouting reports.
During his time with UF, the Gators made three NCAA Tournament appearances, including two in the Elite Eight (2011 & 2012). Florida also advanced to the NIT Quarterfinals (2009) and the NIT Semifinals (2008).
