Hunter was promoted last August after spending three years as the director of player personnel.
“With Chris’ experience as a former student-athlete, his degree from the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, as well as his professional playing experience, we know he will bring great talent and expertise to our program. We are excited to have Chris back in Ann Arbor.”
