Santa Barbara, Calif. -
Greg Clink, an assistant coach in the UC Santa Barbara men's basketball program for the last two seasons has resigned to accept an assistant position at UC Davis, head coach Bob Williams announced.
As UCSB's third assistant, Clink was not allowed to recruit off-campus. In his new position as the top assistant at UC Davis, recruiting will be one of his main focuses.
"Greg Clink did a great job for us," Williams said. "He is an outstanding young coach and to continue to grow he needs to get recruiting experience. While we will miss him, this is a great opportunity for him to get that recruiting experience. UC Davis is very fortunate to have him as part of its staff."
At UCSB, Clink's duties included organization of the Gaucho men's basketball community outreach efforts, including all camps and developmental leagues. He was also involved in all aspects of on-the-court coaching.
"I have loved my time at UC Santa Barbara," commented Clink. "This has been a great place to coach. I have grown tremendously under Coach Williams. Our staff (Williams, Marty Wilson and Jon Wheeler) has been like a family and it is tough to leave, but I am leaving for a great opportunity."
Clink came to UCSB after spending one season as the head coach at Gavilan Community College. Previously, he had been an assistant under Williams at UC Davis (1996-97) and before that he spent two seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, Chico State (1994-96).
