Charles Bassey's guardian lands on staff at Western Kentucky

Rick Stansbury announced Tuesday the hiring of Hennssy Auriantal, Charles Bassey’s legal guardian, as Western Kentucky’s new assistant coach.
The move comes about three weeks after Bassey, a five-star center from Louisville’s Aspire Academy, opted to reclassify and join the Hilltoppers for 2018.
It also ends months of speculation that Auriantal, a former college player at Wisconsin and assistant at Jackson State, would follow Bassey to Bowling Green from Aspire, where he served as an assistant coach.
The Courier Journal reported in February that Auriantal was being considered for the job.
“We’re happy to have Hennssy join our program,” Stansbury said in a press release
