Head Coach Mick Hedgepeth on adding Costas: “Any time you can add someone with Riley’s experience as a player to your staff, it will positively affect your entire program. He will bring tremendous knowledge and the fantastic work ethic that he displayed as a student athlete at Berry. I know those traits will continue to make those around him better, and we are thrilled for him to stay at Berry and begin his coaching career.”
