KSU graduate Reinking named to Charge's staff

Former Kent State University standout Nate Reinking was formally announced as an assistant coach with the Canton Charge on Monday.

The announcement was made by Cleveland Cavaliers director of development league operations Mike Gansey and Charge head coach Steve Hetzel.

As part of the announcement, the Charge also named Jordi Fernandez and James Posey as assistants.

"I am thrilled to have Jordi and Nate joining James and completing our staff. We all share similar basketball philosophies and the strong belief in the importance of defensive principles being at the core of team success," said Hetzel in a press release. "Their diverse backgrounds and wide range of expertise will be extremely beneficial to our players in helping them be prepared each day as well as grow both individually and collectively."

Reinking comes to the Charge with over 20 years of collegiate, professional and international experience as both a player and coach. He is an assistant coach with the Great Britain National Team, as he prepares scouting reports and implements game plans through on-court instruction and video breakdown, including during the team's participation in the 2013 European Championships in Slovenia. Reinking also played for Great Britain from 2005-12, representing the nation in international tournaments such as the Olympics and European Championships.
