The Kings officially announced the hiring of assistant coach Chris Jent today.
Jent spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Ohio State.
"Adding Chris to our coaching staff provides the team with a coach who will remain loyal to the mission of returning this franchise to prominence," said coach Michael Malone in a statement. "He's experienced at the professional and collegiate levels, is extremely well-prepared, and has made a significant contribution in every stop along his coaching career."
