Mr. Yanni Hufnagel has been regarded as one of the most astonishing assistant basketball coaches as he has shown an impressive talent for recruiting team members.
Mr. Yanni Hufnagel has been a part of the basketball team of the Harvard University since the year of 2009. He has been the assistant coach for Crimson – the Harvard basketball team. In 2013, the Crimson basketball team played against the University of Memphis basketball team, trained by fellow Coach Josh Pastner. Both Mr. Yanni Hufnagel and Coach Josh Pastner are Jewish, a rare occurrence among basketball coaches. This unusual combination of team coaches stirred noticeable excitement for the match where the two teams were to face off against each other. The reason for that was the fact that both of them are Jewish. In basketball, there are not many Jewish coaches or players, and that came as an added factor for interest from the side of the audience and the media.
Mr. Yanni Hufnagel was offered the position soon after he had the interview for it with Coach Jeff Capel. The coach was driving Mr. Yanni Hufnagel to the airport and could not resist but tell him that the job is his if he still wanted it. What had impressed him enough to give him the job was the unending enthusiasm that Mr. Yanni Hufnagel had expressed for college basketball and the sport of basketball as a whole. Mr. Yanni Hufnagel had a sufficient amount of knowledge, and it was evident to Coach Jeff Capel, that the man he was interviewing knew what he was talking about.
Mr. Yanni Hufnagel was a part of a survey a few years ago. Almost every coach that took the survey chose him as one of the best recruiters in the sport; even the opposing teams had circled his name.
