New Mexico State head men’s basketball coach Chris Jans announced the hiring of Sean McClurg as his newest video coordinator Thursday afternoon.
“We are excited to announce the hiring of Sean McClurg,” said Jans. “Sean is a very intelligent young man who is well versed in video and basketball analytics. He will definitely add significant value to our program.”
The Paterson, N.J., native comes to Las Cruces after spending the 2017-18 season as a graduate assistant on the Louisiana Tech men’s basketball staff. While in Ruston, La., McClurg played a role in scouting opponents and compiled reports for the coaching staff. He also developed workouts for players during the offseason as well as new evaluation methods for players and line-up combinations.
“I am excited to join Coach Jans’ staff and to have the opportunity to learn from him,” McClurg said. “I look forward to helping the New Mexico State men’s basketball program in any way I can.”
Prior to his time with the Bulldogs, McClurg worked under Buzz Williams at Virginia Tech during his undergrad as a student manager from 2014-17. With the Hokies, McClurg had several responsibilities that included advanced scouting of future opponents, in-game analysis for coaching staff in addition to scheduling and oversight of social media content for the Buzz Williams Team Camp.
During his time in Blacksburg, Va., the Hokies made three-consecutive postseason appearances, including back-to-back NCAA Tournament (2015-17) as well as three-straight seasons with 20-plus wins.
McClurg graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor of science in computational modeling and data analytics in 2017.
