Berry reunites with Darrin Horn, whom Berry coached with at Western Kentucky

Now-former Iowa State assistant basketball coach Neill Berry will be headed to Austin, Texas to join Shaka Smart’s staff. Berry worked for current UT assistant Darrin Horn from 2005-2008 while Horn was the head coach at Western Kentucky.

Berry was promoted to assistant coach two years ago to replace the departing T.J. Otzelberger, and has since been one Steve Prohm’s most important recruiters, taking the lead on Lindell Wigginton and Tyrese Haliburton. We don’t know exactly who Prohm will target to fill Berry’s role, but it will definitely be someone known to be a high-end recruiter.
