Eric Konkol has turned toward one of his former players to fill one of three assistant coach openings at Louisiana Tech.

The school announced Tuesday that Tony Skinn, who played under Konkol at George Mason, is joining the Bulldogs' staff.

Skinn, 32, has no college coaching experience but most recently served as athletic director at Paul Public Charter School in Washington D.C. and as an assistant coach for Nike Team Takeover, a 16-and-under AAU team.

Skinn, who is from Nigeria, played six seasons overseas in Croatia, France, Italy, Germany, Israel and Ukraine. He last played professionally in 2012 as a member of the Nigerian national team that qualified for the Summer Olympics.

What Skinn does bring is the ability to relate to college players, both with age and experience on the court. Skinn played for George Mason in 2006 during the Patriots' Final Four run. The point guard averaged 12 points per game.

One of the strengths of Virginia's 2016 class is its depth, and part of that depth includes Ako Adams of DC Thunder. The 6'2 guard has stayed among the mid to upper-end tier of guards in his class throughout his high school career, and he validated that positioning again this year by averaging over 17 points per game at WCAC power Bishop O'Connell. 

 His impressive play has continued over on to the AAU circuit this spring, and Adams showed in Hampton why he is one of the state's most highly recruited guards, helping lead DC Thunder to the championship game, including a big win over Boo Williams in the semifinals. For one, he's a shot maker from every area of the floor. Whether it's a deep three off the dribble, his go-to midrange game, or a one-legged floater, Adams can put make shots at a good clip. 

The other piece, however, is his well-rounded skillset. He's good ball handler who can play on and off the ball, and he makes correct basketball plays. Adams has a pretty long list of offers that includes the likes of Richmond, ODU, Charlotte, George Washington, La Salle, Lehigh, and Towson. Yale, Brown, and Illinois State have also been reaching out regularly lately. He said he has a visit planned to Richmond on June 12th.
