Former LSU coach Johnny Jones, who was fired last March, will be joining the Nevada Basketball staff as associate head coach. He reconnects with current Wolfpack head coach Eric Musselman who worked under Jones at LSU. Per NevadaWolfPack.com:
“We are absolutely thrilled that coach Jones has joined our staff,” said Musselman. “I saw the leadership and basketball knowledge he possesses when we worked together at LSU. He’s going to be a very important part of many more tournament runs here at Nevada.”
Jones won 90 games in his five years as the head coach at LSU, the most of any head coach at LSU in their first five years. He was the fourth-winningest coach in LSU history. The DeRidder, La. native led the LSU Tigers to two postseason appearances, an NIT and NCAA tournament bid, and coached the 2016 No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons. Musselman was on Jones’ staff during the 2014-15 season.
“I had the opportunity to work with Coach Musselman during our NCAA tournament run,” Jones said. “We had a great experience working together and developed a really good relationship. I’ve watched him grow his Nevada team over the last two years and seen the success. I jumped at the opportunity to work with him again.”
