“I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates, and friends at Weber State for everything for the last four years. I’m going to miss you all,” Gittens said. “I know it’s been a long year with my injury and after deciding to transfer, I got the opportunity to play basketball again.”
Gittens will be coached by Jim Hayford, recently hired at Seattle after six seasons as Eastern Washington head coach. Hayford also hired former Southern Utah head coach Nick Robinson as one of his assistants.
Gittens suffered a Jones fracture in the summer of 2016, then re-injured his foot again in the same spot early in the season and missed his senior year. With no scholarships available for the 2017-18 season, Gittens chose to transfer for his final year of eligibility.
