Patrick Sellers Joins DePaul Staff

DePaul head coach Dave Leitao announced today that Patrick Sellers has joined the program as an assistant coach. Sellers joins associate head coach Rick Carter and assistant coach Billy Garrett on Blue Demon sidelines.

“Coach Sellers is a great addition to our coaching staff here at DePaul,” said Leitao. “His experience not only at Creighton the last two years but throughout his career shows that he coaches and recruits across the country at a high level.”

Sellers comes to DePaul from fellow BIG EAST member Creighton where he spent the last two years as an assistant coach. Prior to Creighton, Sellers made collegiate coaching stops at Central Connecticut State (1999-03), Massachusetts (2003-04), Connecticut (2004-10) and Hofstra (2011-13).

Before his arrival in Omaha, Sellers spent the two seasons as an assistant coach at Hofstra. In his second season with the Pride, Sellers was named the program’s interim head coach before accepting the position on the Creighton staff.

Sellers worked at Connecticut from 2004-10, where he was instrumental in recruiting players such as Jeremy Lamb, Tyler Olander, Shabazz Napier and Roscoe Smith who helped form the nucleus of the 2011 and 2014 national champions. His primary on-court responsibility was working with Connecticut’s frontcourt, including future NBA players Hasheem Thabeet and Jeff Adrien.

Prior to his time in Storrs, Sellers was an assistant coach for one season at Massachusetts (2003-04) and for four years at his alma mater, Central Connecticut State (1999-2003). While at CCSU, the Blue Devils made the NCAA Tournament in both 2000 and 2002, earning regular-season and tournament Northeast Conference titles in both years.
