Hayes returns to Merrimack as assistant coach
Former Merrimack guard Juvaris Hayes will return to Merrimack as an assistant coach on Joe Gallo’s staff this upcoming season. Jeff Goodman from Stadium was the first to report Hayes was joining the program, and The Mack Report confirmed his report this afternoon.
Hayes has been hired as a full-time coach. He completed his playing career last season for BC TSU in Georgia. Hayes graduated from Merrimack in 2020, and his pro career also saw him stop in Germany (Tigers Tübingen in 2020 and the Itzehoe Eagles in 2021).
“It is great to have Juvaris back!” said Merrimack coach Joe Gallo. “Nobody knows our program and what goes into winning at Merrimack more than Juvaris. He will be an invaluable resource for our players.”
Hayes was on Merrimack’s first D-I team in 2019-20, winning the NEC regular season.
