BATON ROUGE, LA -- New LSU coach Johnny Jones has added former Houston Rockets scout David Patrick to his staff.
Patrick, whose hiring was announced Wednesday, also previously held assistant coaching jobs at St. Mary's and Nicholls State following a Division I career and four years playing professionally in Australia, England and Spain.
Jones says Patrick's basketball background will help not only with game-planning and practice, but recruiting.
Patrick was a member of Syracuse's 1996 Final Four team before transferring to Louisiana-Lafayette, where he played three seasons.
Patrick was born in Bermuda and grew up partly in Australia, where he became a junior national team member. He moved in 1994 to Baton Rouge, where he played his senior season of high school basketball.
