Former Duke men’s basketball star Greg Paulus got into coaching in 2010 as an assistant at Navy. Almost 10 years later, he’s becoming a head coach.
Niagara has reportedly agreed to a multi-year contract with Paulus to make him the school’s head coach.
Paulus, 33, became the program’s interim head coach earlier this fall when Patrick Beilein announced his resignation.
Jon Rothstein reports that it’s expected to be made official soon.
