Jones adds another assistant

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

With Curtis Wilson and Shaun Morris already on board for new Boston University men's basketball coach Joe Jones' first staff, Jones added another assistant to the list, hiring Carmen Maciariello as an assistant coach.

Maciariello spent only a few months as the coordinator of basketball operations for Providence College, following new Friars coach Ed Cooley after working under him as an assistant coach for three seasons at Fairfield University. At Fairfield, he was the lead recruiter for Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference all-rookie team member Maurice Barrow. In his three seasons under Cooley at Fairfield, the Stags went 64-33 went two postseason appearances, albeit neither of them NCAA Tournament berths.

Prior to his time at Fairfield, Maciariello spent the 2005-06 season as the director of basketball operations for his alma mater, Siena College. Maciariello also spent time as the vice president and coach of the Albany City Rocks, an Elite Nike travel team that allowed Maciariello to work with players such as Jimmer Fredette and Talor Battle.

Jones' hire of Maciariello will likely complete his first staff at BU, a staff that also includes Wilson, Morris and director of basketball operations Joe Bianco.
