Cal Poly men's basketball coach Joe Callero promoted from within to replace the recently departed Mitch Freeman. Mitch Reaves will take over Freeman's position as assistant coach and will be tasked with the development of Cal Poly's guard play and overall team defense.
Reaves has been with Callero during his four seasons at Cal Poly, serving as the director of operations. Reaves coordinated player workouts, recruiting endeavors, organized team travel, video exchange, the program's summer camp series and directed the program's student managerial staff. Callero has not yet named a new director of operations.
Freeman left the program in late July to accept the head coaching position at two-year Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Washington.
Reaves began his career as Seattle University's director of operations during the 2008-09 season. Prior to arriving at Seattle, Reaves served as a team manager with Washington State (2005-08) and as the head manager during his final two seasons. With the Cougars, his duties included organizing the program's recruiting database and coordinating team activities. Reaves attended and helped coordinate operations for Washington State at the 2007 and 2008 NCAA Tournaments. The Cougars reached the Sweet Sixteen in 2008.
The Mustangs reached the semifinals of the Big West Conference Tournament for a second successive year, the 2012-13 team established program records for Big West victories (12-6) and Big West winning percentage (.667). Cal Poly's 18 overall wins matched the second highest total in 19 Division I seasons.
