Former Duke guard Tyler Thornton will join Steve Wojciechowski's staff at Marquette as a graduate assistant, the first-year head coach announced Monday.
Thornton, who just completed a psychology degree at Duke, will enroll in the communications graduate program at Marquette.
"I am extremely excited to have Tyler join our staff," Wojciechowski said. "He is a tireless worker and will be a tremendous asset to our program. He is a great student of the game and will obviously be able to provide perspective on what it takes to be successful at this level."
As an assistant coach at Duke, Wojciechowski coached Thornton for the past four seasons. Thornton averaged 3.1 points, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steals in 139 games for the Blue Devils. Named as Duke's team captain for the 2013-14 season, Thornton made 25 starts during his senior campaign.
