Albany State University now has a new men's head basketball coach after a national search and over 100 applications.
ASU officials say that Patrick Gayle has been picked to lead the Golden Rams team.
"Coach Gayle is a high-energy leader committed to being a part of our university and the city of Albany. He has a tremendous basketball pedigree and a strong track record of recruiting, developing and mentoring high-quality student-athletes. He has a relentless work ethic, passion for the game and clear vision of how to build a program that is capable of competing at the highest levels in the conference and region. I look forward to our student-athletes, fans, donors and alumni getting to know Coach Gayle and his family," said Athletics Director Sherie Gordon.
"My family and I are excited to be a part of the Albany State University family and community and we look forward to working closely with the alumni, student-body, faculty, and staff to produce a program that all can be proud,” says Gayle.
Gayle has previously coached at St. Thomas University, Tiffin Univerity, Creekside Highschool in Georgia and Nova High School in Florida.
