Position: Assistant Coach

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, Clemson assistant basketball coach Richie Riley is expected to be named the new head coach at Nicholls St.

Riley spent the last two seasons working under head coach Brad Brownell at Clemson. Riley spent the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons coaching under Jerod Haase at UAB. He helped the Blazers to an 18-13 overall record, including a 63-59 victory over No. 16 North Carolina in December 2013. He played an integral role in recruiting UAB’s large freshman class — a group that helped the Blazers to the 2015 NCAA Tournament after a Conference USA title.

Nicholls St. is located in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The school's team currently competes in the Southland Conference.
