Tony Delk, UK's assistant director of basketball operations and one of the stars of the 1996 Kentucky national championship team, has been hired as an assistant coach at New Mexico State.

The former NBA player will join Marvin Menzies' staff after two years at UK.

"Congratulations to Tony Delk, who will now have the opportunity to be an assistant coach at New Mexico State," UK head coach John Calipari said in a statement. "There's no doubt in my mind that Tony will be a great basketball coach and I couldn't be happier for him. Part of what we want to continue to do is give former players from our family the opportunity to jumpstart their careers. I'm so thankful that Tony was with us our first two years at Kentucky. His background as a UK graduate, national title winner and NBA veteran provided a valuable resource for our program. My job as a head coach is to help all of our family, including players, staff and assistant coaches, to reach their dreams. You want everyone in this program to benefit from its success.  It makes me proud to see guys like Tony Delk, Scott Padgett, Martin Newton, David Scott and Jason Walberg move up the ladder in their careers."
