The Siena men's basketball team has a new coach. Loyola's Jimmy Patsos has been offered the position. Sports Director Marisa Jacques has more on what the appointment means for the Saints. She was also joined by Patsos himself to talk about what he has planned for the program.
LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. -- He took the Loyola Greyhounds from a one win team to MAAC champions and the Siena Saints are hoping he can turn things around for them as well.
Jimmy Patsos was introduced as the new coach of the Siena men's basketball team. Patsos went 145 and 135 during his tenure at Loyola. Before that, he served as an assistant coach under Gary Williams at Maryland.
Patsos says he's always envied the coaching job at Siena.
"This is a great job, it's a great place, Albany is a great feel, the school is a great feel. And it starts at the top with Father Kevin and obviously John hiring me. I'm grateful. I'm lucky. I had a couple people say to me Siena is lucky to get you, but it's clearly the other way. I am lucky to be here at Siena," Patsos said.
