KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- WVLT has confirmed that Tennessee senior basketball player Lucas Campbell will trade his jersey for a whistle.
After four years as a player with the Vols, Campbell is taking over as a graduate assistant coach under Rick Barnes.
We confirmed the information with Campbell's family this weekend.
In March, Barnes was asked about walk-ons Lucas Campbell and Brad Woodson.
"They're the ones that laid this foundation," said Barnes.
Barnes also referred to Campbell as one of "the most cerebral guys on our team."
We're told Campbell has already started in his new role.
