A member of Keno Davis' staff for one year at Providence, Kevin Gamble was one of the first hires for Davis' inaugural Central Michigan staff.
Gamble, a 10-year NBA veteran, left an eight-year stint as a college head coach to spend the 2010-11 season as the Friars' coordinator of player development and video operations, heading up the program's academics, student-athlete development and video efforts.
A member of the 1986-87 Iowa team that won 30 games and advanced to the Elite 8 under Davis' father, Gamble was selected by the Portland Trailblazers in the third round of the 1987 NBA Draft. He played with the Boston Celtics from 1988-94 and finished his career with the Sacramento Kings in 1998.
Prior to joining the Friars, Gamble served as the first head coach at the University of Illinois-Springfield where he put together a 130-79 record and earned a pair of American Midwest Conference Coach of the Year honors.
