VILLANOVA, Pa. - A re-organization of duties affecting some members of the Villanova basketball staff was announced today.

Jason Donnelly, a staff member since 2005 and most recently an assistant coach, moves into the role of Special Assistant to the Head Coach. Baker Dunleavy, who previously served as Director of Operations and Assistant Strength Coach, is now an Assistant Coach, while Arleshia Davidson, who has served the staff in an administrative role since 2009, is the new Director of Basketball Operations. George Halcovage has been elevated from an intern position to the role of Video Coordinator and former Wildcat Curtis Sumpter, a 2006 alumnus who was a two-time All-BIG EAST selection, has returned to the program in the capacity of Student-Athlete Development Assistant.

The revised basketball staff lineup also includes Associate Head Coach Billy Lange, who enters his second season in that role, and newly hired Assistant Coach Raphael Chillious.

"In our basketball family, the priority is teaching and mentoring our young guys to be the best students, best men and best players they can be," stated Wright. "We have a great group of passionate people here to help us do just that."
