Drew’s staff appointments announced Tuesday also include Omar Mance as director of recruiting and player personnel plus Luke Simons as director of basketball operations.

Powell and Simons are following Drew from Valparaiso. Diebler also was part of Drew’s staff at Valparaiso before spending the past three seasons as Ohio State’s video coordinator.
