Two quick things…
Hartford interim head coach Tom Devitt will add Paul Harris as an assistant coach. Harris, who played at Syracuse (2006-09), retired from a professional career overseas and in the G-League that lasted 12-years. He will join recently hired assistant Jeff Rafferty on Devitt’s staff. An official announcement is expected shortly.
St. Francis Brooklyn has added Marc Rybczyk as an assistant coach. The veteran coach had most recently been on Will Brown’s staff with the Albany Patroons (TBL). He has also been the head coach at Southern Connecticut, and SUNY Cobleskill, and served as an assistant at Central Connecticut, Niagara, and New Haven. Here’s a great article about Rybczyk and how he has been kicking cancer’s ass (HERE).
