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.”
Jimmy Langhurst joined the mens basketball staff as an assistant coach in July 2015.
Prior to coming to Le Moyne, he served as an assistant coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In his only season on the bench at IUP, the Crimson Hawks advanced to the 2015 NCAA Division II National Championship game after winning 31 games, the second-most in the programs history. His responsibilities with the Crimson Hawks included developing the guards, recruiting, community service projects, practice planning, travel arrangements and handling the teams social media accounts. The team set single-season program records for points (2832), three-pointers made (282) and free throw percentage (.782). Guard Devante Chance was named to the NABC and Division II Bulletin All-America Teams, NABC and Daktronics All-Atlantic Region First Teams, PSAC West Division Athlete of the Year, while also being named to the Elite Eight and Atlantic Region All-Tournament Teams. He earned the honors after setting the programs single-season record for assists with 217, while registering 627 points, the third-most in the programs history. Additionally, he tied the program record for three-pointers in a season with 88. Also, guard Shawn Dyer was selected as the Atlantic Region Tournament MVP and named to the Elite Eight All-Tournament Team and PSAC West Second Team.
Prior to being hired at IUP in 2014, Langhurst worked at the Hoop Group in Neptune, N.J. In this position, he recruited students, evaluated student-athletes at the Hoop Group Top 100 and Jr. Elite Top 100, helped with the planning and running of team tournaments, and provided individual and group instruction.
