Towson men’s basketball assistant Eric Skeeters has been hired for the same position at USF, coach Stan Heath announced Wednesday night, leaving just one open position on the Bulls’ staff.

Skeeters spent five seasons at Towson and will arrive in Tampa on Friday to begin work. He also coached under former USF coach Seth Greenberg at Virginia Tech during the 2003-04 season.

“Eric and I hit it off well,” Heath said in a statement. “He fit the profile I was looking for in recruiting, skill development and player relations. Eric’s a great fit for USF basketball and I expect him to make an immediate impact on our program.”

While Skeeters was at Virginia Tech, the Hokies had a winning record for the first time in four seasons and he helped recruit standout forward Deron Washington, who was named an All-ACC Rookie.
