I spoke with new men’s basketball assistant coach Josh Postorino, an engaging sort whom you’ll enjoy meeting if you get the opportunity. He’s been busy recruiting and visiting with old contacts in the Atlanta area. I’ve got four Josh Postorino facts. I’ll post something in the afternoon spring football-related.
1. Postorino’s first job was at Dayton in 2000, where he also played, as director of operations under Oliver Purnell. He shared a small, windowless office with Shaka Smart, who joined him after one season. They later worked together at Clemson under Purnell and have remained friends. Postorino, in fact, watched VCU play Butler in the Final Four from behind the VCU bench.
2. Postorino met Brian Gregory at a recruiting seminar that Gregory led and Postorino and Smart both attended. Postorino said he still uses a lot of the stuff Gregory shared, including trying to making contact with recruits and their coaches daily – five phone calls, five hand-written notes
