USC associate head men’s basketball coach Jason Hart has resigned and will be named as the new head coach of the NBA run G League Ignite.
Hart had been on the USC staff since 2013, and was elevated to associate head coach in 2017. He was an assistant at Pepperdine before joining Andy Enfield’s staff.
The Southern California native played at Syracuse (1997-2000) left as the school’s all-time leader in steals (329) and second all-time in assists (709). He also shares the Syracuse record for most steals in a season of 101 set in 1999.
Hart was a second round pick by the Bucks in the 1999 NBA draft, and spent nine seasons in the league. He played for Milwaukee, San Antonio, Charlotte, the Los Angeles Clippers, Sacramento, Utah, Denver, New Orleans and Minnesota.
USC tweeted a farewell to Hart earlier today:
