The last twenty-five years for the men’s basketball program at Siena College has experienced its peaks and valleys, with the recent “peak” being under current Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery and the recent “valley” occurring with recently-fired coach Mitch Buonaguro. Now, fans of the Saints and athletic director John D’Argenio will pin their hopes on a new leader to return the program to its not too distant prominence – Jimmy Patsos from the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds.

Before taking the job at Loyola, Patsos served as an assistant at the University of Maryland for over a decade, including the 2002 National Championship team that was coached by Gary Williams and defeated Siena College in the Round of 64. During his nine seasons with the Greyhounds, the fiery coach had a record of 145-135 and was the MAAC Tournament champion in 2012, losing to eventual Final Four participant Ohio State.

Patsos will become the 16th head coach in the history of the Siena men’s basketball program and will be looked to as a passionate leader for the hopeful resurgence of the Saints program. Siena is coming off three consecutive losing campaigns under former head coach Mitch Buonaguro, with a combined record of 35-59 overall and 20-34 in conference play.
