Hastings College women's basketball coach Carrie Hofstetter announced the hiring of former Omaha Benson head coach Jon Perone as an assistant on Monday.

Perone led the Bunnies to the program's first state championship in 2014, finishing with a record of 26-2. Benson also qualified for the 2013 state basketball tournament under Perone.

In his time at the school, six players have earned All-Metro honors and 13 have continued their playing careers in college.

He has been named the Boys and Girls Club coach of the year three years in a row. He's also been named the Omaha Metro coach of the year twice and the Huskerland Prep coach of the year once.
