A former walk-on for the University of Arizona, Quinton Crawford has joined the Pepperdine men's basketball staff as a graduate manager for the 2013-14 season.
In addition to his basketball duties, Crawford will be pursuing a master's degree in education psychology from Pepperdine.
"I am thrilled to have Quinton join our basketball staff and family," Pepperdine Coach Marty Wilson said. "He came highly recommended from several people that I respect. He is known to be a very loyal and dedicated worker who wants to learn and grow in this business. He will be very valuable to our staff and I also believe he will be a great resource for our players as well."
Crawford, who played with the Wildcats for two seasons and appeared in a total of nine games, graduated from Arizona in 2013 with a degree in general studies. Arizona went 50-20 over his two years and made it to the Sweet Sixteen of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
A native of Old Bridge, N.J., Crawford spent the first two years of his collegiate career at Middlesex County College, located in Edison, N.J. He played with the Colts for both seasons and was a team captain.
He has been a camp counselor at the Sean Miller Basketball Camp.
