Le Moyne College Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Matt Bassett announced this morning the hiring of Patrick Beilein as the eighth head mens basketball coach in program history. Beilein replaces Steve Evans, who was promoted to Associate Director of Athletics last month after a 15-year tenure in charge of the Dolphins.
Beilein, the son of former Le Moyne head coach (1983-92) and current University of Michigan head coach John Beilein, spent this past season as the player development coach for the National Basketball Associations Utah Jazz.
“Certainly Patrick is accustomed to having his recognizable name and pedigree precede him, but what was impressive was the level of pride and gratitude he has for all that that has meant in his life,” said Bassett. “He does not seem to shy away from it in any way. Equally as impressive was how quickly he made you realize he was his own guy, with a passion to coach and mentor this generation of athlete, and with a highly-confident vision for how our basketball program would proceed under his leadership.”
“I am very excited about this opportunity to become the next head mens basketball coach at Le Moyne College,” said Beilein. “In the first nine years of my childhood, the Le Moyne basketball program was basically part of my familys everyday life. Now, to return as the head coach 23 years later, is a dream come true.”
