Joe Bianco, who has spent the last two seasons as an administrative assistant with the Boston University men's basketball team, has been named the team's director of basketball operations by new BU head coach Joe Jones, the school confirmed in a press release Thursday.
Bianco began his work at BU in 2009 shortly after Patrick Chambers was appointed as the program's next head coach. His duties as an administrative assistant included breaking down film, assisting with on-campus recruiting visits, as well as helping with film exchange.
"We are very fortunate to have Joey Bianco as our director of operations," Jones said in a statement. "In a short time, I have been very impressed with Joey's relationships with our players and his work ethic. I am really looking forward to watching Joey's development."
Before arriving at BU, Bianco served as a manager for the men's basketball team at Villanova for four seasons before graduating from the school in 2009.
Bianco replaces Adam Fisher, who left the program June 21 to join Chambers at Penn State University, and he becomes the third member of Jones' inaugural staff at BU, joining assistant coaches Curtis Wilson and Shaun Morris.
