Mocs Athletic Director Says New Basketball Coach Lamont Paris Can Recruit Shooters
Chattanooga-(WDEF) The Chattanooga Mocs plan to introduce Wisconsin assistant Lamont Paris as their new head basketball coach on Tuesday at noon.
Sounds like Paris was an easy hire, since he was a finalist for the UTC job in 2015 before the Mocs hired Matt McCall.
Mocs athletic director David Blackburn calls Paris an elite level person, and apparently Paris can recruit elite-level offensive threats.
Said Blackburn:”He’s a master at finding shooters that can shoot off of a pace meaning while they’re going hard forward, they can stop and shoot it. Not just a three-pointer but mid-range.”
