LSU assistant Nick Robinson will be introduced Thursday afternoon as the new head basketball coach at Southern Utah University, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
Robinson has spent the past three seasons on the LSU staff, serving as an executive assistant to Trent Johnson and the director of basketball operations the first two years before being promoted to assistant coach prior to the 2011-12 season.
Born in Salt Lake City, Robinson attended high school in Liberty, Mo. Robinson, 32, played college basketball at Stanford, finishing his career the same season Johnson took over the Cardinal in 2003-04. He broke into coaching at Stanford from 2006-08, then spent 2008-09 as an assistant at William Jewell College.
Southern Utah announced Wednesday it would hold a news conference Thursday to reveal its new coach, but did not say who the coach would be.
Robinson interviewed for the job last week, LSU spokesman Kent Lowe said.
According to The Salt Lake Tribune’s report, Indiana Hills (Iowa) Community College coach Barret Peery and Pacific assistant Ron Verlin were the other finalists for the position.
The job came open when Roger Reid retired after five seasons on the Southern Utah sideline. The Thunderbirds went 14-17 last year, including 8-10 in the Summit League. They will move into the Big Sky Conference along with other Southern Utah sports this summer.
