LAWRENCE, Kan. — Former University of Kansas guard Greg Gurley will be joining KU’s men’s basketball radio team as an analyst, the school announced on Thursday.
Gurley will replace former Jayhawk Chris Piper, who will move over to the team’s television team as an analyst. In a statement, Piper said that the move was to help him spend more time with his family and business interests.
“This is a natural switch,” Kansas head coach Bill Self said in a statement. “Greg has great experience and knows our program just like Chris does, and Pipe will be able to stay active with the television broadcasts and have more time for his family and work.”
Gurley was a part of three Big 8 Conference title-winning teams during his four years with the Jayhawks (1992-1995), including a Final Four appearance in 1993. He joined Kansas Athletics in the summer of 2011 as the Director of Development for the Williams Education Fund.
Piper played on two Final Four teams during his four years at KU, including the 1988 National Championship team.
Gurley will join play-by-play announcer Bob Davis on Jayhawks radio broadcasts. Piper will join play-by-play TV announcer Dave Armstrong on KU games carried by the Jayhawk IMG Television Network.
