USF men’s basketball head coach Orlando Antigua has hired former FIU head coach and Ole Miss assistant Sergio Rouco as an assistant coach on his staff.

“Sergio has over 25 years of coaching experience at the Division I level,” Antigua said. “He has great recruiting connections not just in the state of Florida, but around the world, which will greatly benefit our program.”

Rouco spent the last three seasons at Ole Miss and helped the Rebels to a revival in 2012-13 with a school record-tying 27 wins, the program’s second SEC Tournament title and its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2002.
