Sources are telling The Fan Blog that Jamion Christian has emerged as the favorite for the assistant spot on Shaka Smart's staff at VCU. The spot became available when VCU assistant Mike Jones left for the head coaching position at Radford.
The former Mount guard from New Kent, VA has spent the last three years on the staff at William and Mary. In 2010 Tony Shaver's Tribe made it to the NIT and put a scare into North Carolina at Carmichael Arena. Prior to arriving in Williamsburg, Christian was the Director of Basketball Operations at Bucknell University.
While a Mountaineer, Christian averaged 6.5 points a game. He was a finalist for the head coaching position at the Mount when Milan Brown left for Holy Cross and Robert Burke was named head coach.
