Christian Webster is in his first season as an assistant coach for Virginia Tech. The former Harvard standout came to Tech following one season at UCF.

A native of Washington, D.C., Webster arrived in Blacksburg with a wealth of NCAA Tournament experience as both a student-athlete and an assistant with the Crimson. After two seasons at his alma mater, Webster spent the 2015-16 season in Orlando with the Knights, his second Division I assistant coaching job at just 25 years old.

Harvard went 49-13 and made back-to-back appearances in the Big Dance in Webster’s two seasons on the bench. The 2014 NCAA Tournament saw the Crimson upset No. 5 seed Cincinnati, 61-57, in the second round and a near-upset of No. 4 Michigan State.

Webster was asked to join head coach Tommy Amaker’s staff after he had just completed a decorated four-year career in Cambridge. He holds the distinction as Harvard’s winningest player with 90 career victories that featured three consecutive Ivy League Championships and back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths. Webster also ranks fifth in program history with 176 career 3-pointers and second with 117 games played.

Webster graduated from Harvard in the spring of 2013 with his degree in psychology.
