According to a news release from Fresno State Athletics, Adams will be responsible for coordinating day-to-day operations, team travel, community service, practice coordination and other administrative logistics for the program.
Adams spent the 2018 season as lead assistant coach at California State University, Northridge.
From 2015-17, Adams was part of San Diego State’s men’s basketball coaching staff when the Aztecs won the 2016 Mountain West regular season championship.
Adams played basketball collegiately at Livingstone College in Salisbury, North Carolina.
He earned a degree in business administration from Livingstone University in 2012 and a master’s degree in educational leadership from San Diego State University.
“I’m thrilled to join Coach Hutson and his staff,” Adams said, according to the release. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to be here in the Valley and meet and work with the people in the community. I know that the people in Valley have so much pride in what the ‘Green V’ represents and we are working every day to make the community proud of our program.”
Hutson also selected Titus Shelton as director of player development and Nate Leal as special assistant. Both have experience in the Central Valley with basketball skill development and program coordination.
