UNH men's hoops hires two assistants

First-year New Haven men's basketball coach Ted Hotaling has hired Tobe Carberry and Marcus Wellman as assistant coaches for the Charger men's basketball program.

Both have strong local ties. Carberry played at Hillhouse. He was at Southern Connecticut for three seasons as an assistant coach.

His brother, Tobin, will be a sophomore at Southern this season.

Some might also remember Carberry was a finalist in the slam dunk contest during the 2000 Final Four festivities while he played at Vermont.

"Our program is fortunate to add someone of Tobe's caliber to the staff. I have known Tobe since his playing days and more recently during his coaching career,” said Hotaling in a release. “He has significant recruiting ties in the Northeast and more specifically in the state of Connecticut. He has great knowledge of the game and is passionate about his role in helping young people reach their potential. I think he is an excellent role model for the student-athletes in our program."

Wellman, who is from Monroe, graduated from Hamden Hall in 2005, where he played for UNH alum David Beckerman.

He then played at Northeast-10 rival Franklin Pierce, where he was a four-year starter.

"Marcus is going to have a bright future as a college basketball coach. He has a great feel for the game and will be able to use his recent experience as a player to help our student-athletes achieve every day,” said Hotaling in the release. “Like Tobe, Marcus is a Connecticut native that has an excellent reputation around the state. He will be an outstanding recruiter and representative for our program. I am excited to watch him grow and develop as a coach.”
