Former Blue Demon and NBA veteran Kevin Edwards joined the DePaul men's basketball staff as the program's director of community, corporate and professional relations in Oct. 2010. Edwards played two seasons for the Blue Demons from 1986-88 before an 11-year NBA career.

In his current role with the program, Edwards works as a liaison to members of the University community and Chicago's corporate community while also handling the program's relationships with professional basketball franchises in the United States and overseas.

Edwards played two seasons at DePaul from 1986-88 and finished his career with 995 points and led the Blue Demons to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances. He averaged 14.4 points per game as a junior before posting a scoring average of 18.8 points per game during his senior season. In his two seasons, DePaul put together a combined record of 50-11.

He was selected by the Miami Heat with the 20th overall pick of the 1988 NBA Draft as the second ever draft pick in the franchise's history. In his 11 NBA seasons, he totaled 6,596 points in 604 games and retired as a member of the Vancouver Grizzlies in 2001.

Following his NBA career, Edwards was a producer for Extra Film Productions where he provided the funding and oversaw the production of the film "MVP" that was accepted by the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.

Edwards and his family live in north suburban Chicago and two of his children are student-athletes at the collegiate level. Lucy is a senior midfielder on the DePaul women's soccer team and Lorenzo is a sophomore forward on the men's basketball team at Saint Joseph's.
