Moikobu Joins Drake Men’s Basketball Coaching Staff

Drake University head men’s basketball coach Darian DeVries has announced the addition of Achoki Moikobu to his staff as an assistant coach.
Moikobu joins the Bulldogs after a season on the staff at Grand Canyon University, where he recently helped the Antelopes to the 2021 Western Athletic Conference title and first NCAA Tournament appearance.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to become a part of a consistent winning program,” Moikobu said. “Drake University and the entire city of Des Moines continues to show rapid growth. I am excited to wrap my arms around my responsibilities within this team and help the program continue to operate at a high level.”
Moikobu served as GCU’s director of recruiting and helped assemble a roster that transformed a 13-17 team into one that went 17-7 in 2020-21 to win the league title and earn an NCAA Tournament berth.
Before joining the program at GCU, he spent the previous six years as the postgraduate head coach at Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Aire, Kan., where he coached 28 future Division I players, including current Bulldog D.J. Wilkins.
Moikobu, a native of Seattle, Wash., played at Fort Hays State in Hays, Kansas, where he was a 40.7 percent 3-point shooter with 91 makes in two seasons.
