Charlo, a fan favorite known for his hustle, played collegiately in Reno at the University of Nevada. He spent two seasons with Wolf Pack, helping them win the Western Athletic Conference regular season championship both years.
"When I got the call that Mo was available to come back to the D-League, I was a typical Bighorns and Wolf Pack fan and immediately said yes without hesitation," said Bighorns' owner Herb Santos, Jr. "Mo has always been a fan favorite, both for the Bighorns and Nevada, and I know the fans will be looking forward to his great defense and high-caliber play."
In addition, former Nevada standout Garry Hill-Thomas has been promoted to assistant coach under interim head coach, Jason Glover. Hill-Thomas had been serving as the Director of Basketball Operations for the Bighorns this season. He played four years at Nevada, helping lead the team to a Sweet 16 appearance his senior year in 2004.
