Mike Iuzzolino will be Jim Baron’s new assistant coach at Canisius, according to an ESPN report.

Iuzzolino was the director of basketball operations at Canisius in 2012-13, Jim Baron’s first season as coach, but left last summer to take the same position at New Mexico.

Iuzzolino played for Baron at St. Francis and spent two years in the NBA with the Dallas Mavericks.

Canisius’ athletic department said it could not comment on a personnel matter. [Update, Sept. 8: Now official]
