Marquette University announced Monday that it is adding a former teammate of new head coach Steve Wojciechowski as a new assistant coach.

Chris Carrawell will join the MU staff alongside Wojciechowski.

"I have a tremendous amount of respect for Chris and couldn’t be more excited about him joining the Marquette family,” Wojciechowski said in a statement on Marquette's web site.

“I have obviously had the chance to play and coach with him and have remained in constant contact and followed his career after his departure from Duke," Wojciechowski added.

Carrawell coached in the NBA Developmental League with the Springfield Armor, was a graduate assistant and video coordinator with Duke and also helped their women's team, according to the university.

He was awarded the 2000 ACC Player of the Year honor while at Duke. He played overseas after his time with the Blue Devils.
