UCF men's basketball team has welcomed Christian Webster to the team's coaching staff Monday.

Webster, who spent the last six years at Harvard as both a player and an assistant coach under coach Tommy Amaker, joins UCF with a winning pedigree after being a part of four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances — the first two as a player and the last two as coach, according to a news release.

A former co-captain at Harvard, he helped bring the Crimson three consecutive Ivy League championships as a player between 2009-13, and graduated as the all-time winningest player in program history.

In 2013-14, Webster's first season on Amaker's staff, Harvard set school records in overall wins (27) and conference victories (13), while advancing to the Sweet Sixteen after pulling off an upset over fifth-seeded Cincinnati in the NCAA Tournament.

Under the men's basketball head coach Donnie Jones, Webster is expected to play a key role in the recruiting process.
