Assistant coach Carlin Hartman has left Oklahoma for the same job at Nevada, Las Vegas, according to a report by Stadium's Jeff Goodman.
Oklahoma assistant Carlin Hartman is headed to UNLV to help Kevin Kruger as top assistant, source told @Stadium. Will be huge for Kruger.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) March 30, 2021
Hartman, who's spent the last five seasons at OU, joins new UNLV coach Kevin Kruger, five days after his father Lon Kruger retired as the Sooners' head coach.
As one of the lead recruiters of the program, Hartman helped bring the best recruiting class of Kruger's 10-year regime. The 2019 class was ranked 13th in the nation per Rivals. Hartman also recruited transfer guards Austin Reaves, Elijah Harkless and Umoja Gibson to OU.
In 2020, Hartman was named a top-three assistant coach in the Big 12 by Stadium, as voted on by league's head coaches.
