Bobby Frasor and Jackie Manuel both were part of national championship teams during their years at North Carolina. Now they’ll be helping the Tar Heels in a different capacity.
Frasor and Manuel, both former Carolina guards, have joined the UNC basketball staff, the university announced on Friday. Frasor, a member of North Carolina’s 2009 national championship team, will serve as the Tar Heels’ assistant video coordinator. Manuel, a member of the Heels’ 2005 title team, will be the team’s assistant strength and conditioning coordinator.
Both of the jobs are temporary and will last six months, ending May 15, 2012.
“These are two outstanding young men who have decided to end their competitive playing careers and are looking to get into basketball from a non-playing perspective,” UNC coach Roy Williams said in a statement. “I think this will be a great opportunity for them to focus on what it takes to run a program.
“They’ll set good examples for our current players because they know what it takes to win at a high level.”
