OFFICIAL: Wright State Staff Update reported both of these hirings last month – they have now been made official…

Wright State head basketball coach Billy Donlon has announced the hiring of Patrice Days and Kevin Devitt as assistant coaches for the Raiders.

“Patrice and Kevin will bring great energy and passion to our program,” Donlon said. “They both generated tremendous recruiting contacts early in their coaching careers.”

Days spent the last two season as an assistant coach at Abilene Christian in Texas where he served as the recruiting coordinator under head coach Joe Golding. Before he joined the ACU staff, he was an assistant coach at Arlington Country Day School in Jacksonville, Florida, where he worked under legendary prep coach Rex Morgan. Days helped Country Day – one of the top prep schools in the country – to a 30-4 record in 2012-13.

Devitt spent the last four years at UAB as the director of operations for two seasons after previously serving as the administrative assistant and associate director of operations during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. The Blazers took their first-ever Conference USA Tournament Championship, before advancing to the Round of 32 at the 2015 NCAA Tournament with a 60-59 win against No. 3 seed Iowa State.

Days graduated from New Orleans while Devitt is a graduate of DePaul. With the Raiders, both will be involved in all facets of the program, including recruiting, practice planning, floor coaching, academics and promotions.
