Walters was All-Big Eight guard at Kansas
BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Former Kansas standout and Valparaiso assistant coach Rex Walters has joined Matt Doherty's coaching staff at Florida Atlantic.
"I was very fortunate to have coached someone like him at Kansas," Doherty said Wednesday. "He's a hard worker, a team player. He'll be a tremendous role model for our players."
Walters, an All-Big Eight guard in two years with the Jayhawks, played on the 1992-93 Final Four team when Doherty was an assistant under Roy Williams.
Walters spent the past two years assisting Homer Drew at Valparaiso, and previously served as a volunteer assistant at a high school in Overland Park, Kan.
