ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Brett Fink, who spent the 2011-12 campaign as the UCF women's basketball program's assistant director of operations, has been named an assistant coach for the Knights, head coach Joi Williams announced Thursday.
This past season, Fink assisted with the daily operations of the program, helping manage travel, expenses, video exchange and preparation and camps.
"I am very excited about Brett Fink's new role within our basketball program. After conducting a national search, there was no doubt that the best fit for our program was already here. Throughout Brett's time with us, his integrity, character and strong work ethic have always been evident. His passion, knowledge of the game and commitment to a standard of excellence and on-going professional development made it clear that he is more than capable of helping us to build a nationally-recognized women's basketball program. In addition to having character traits that I respect, Brett's coaching experience and loyalty as a UCF alum leave no question that he is the right addition to our coaching staff. I look forward to working with him for years to come," Williams said.
A 2003 graduate of UCF, Fink brings over 10 years of coaching experience to his new position. Prior to joining the UCF staff last season, Fink served as the head coach at Cocoa Beach Junior/Senior High School for five years, managing all aspects of the middle school, ninth grade, junior varsity and varsity teams.
Fink also has experience as the head coach and owner of Lady Hurricanes, Inc., an AAU travel program. From 2001-03, he served as an assistant men's coach at Brevard Community College.
"I'm elated that Coach Williams has given me this opportunity and I will do my best to assist her and our team," Fink said. "This past season was a wonderful chance to observe, learn and be mentored by Coach Williams and I'm excited about the prospects of continuing to learn from her. Teaching the game of basketball is my passion and I look forward to working with our student-athletes and helping them develop into the best players, teammates and people that they can be. The fact that I have this opportunity at my alma mater makes this even sweeter."
