AMES, Iowa - Iowa State head men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg announced today that former UCF Director of Basketball Operations Micah Byars is the latest addition to the Cyclone men's hoops staff. Byars will assume the role of Director of Player Development for the program.

Byars has been a valuable member of the UCF staff for the last seven seasons, as several Knight players have earned national recognition. In 2009, Jermaine Taylor was the C-USA Player of the Year and was an Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America pick.

The Knights advanced to the CBI semifinals in 2011, as Marcus Jordan and Keith Clanton earned All-C-USA honors.

A native of Gainesville, Fla., Byars was an assistant coach at Chipola College from 2003-05. Several Chipola players moved onto the Division I ranks while Byars was at the junior college power, including Mario Boggan (Oklahoma State), Stefhon Hannah (Missouri) and former Iowa State star Mike Taylor, who was selected in the second round of the 2008 NBA Draft.

Byars also worked at New Orleans and Santa Fe Community College prior to his time at Chipola.

"We feel fortunate that we could get a high-character person like Micah to join our staff," Hoiberg said. "He is extremely organized, well-rounded and has proven to be an outstanding mentor to the players he has had the opportunity to coach. Micah has accumulated over 10 years of collegiate coaching as well and has familiarity with our staff while working with T.J. Otzelberger at Chipola College."
