Richie Riley named Nicholls State men's basketball coach
THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Nicholls State has named Richie Riley as its new men's basketball coch.
Athletic Director Rob Bernardi said Tuesday that Riley, who spent the past two seasons working under Brad Brownell as an assistant at Clemson, is a tremendous talent who fits the needs of Nicholls State's program.
As a member of the Tigers' coaching staff, Riley helped Clemson to 10 ACC wins for just the fifth time in program history.
Riley replaces J.P. Piper, who posted a 132-224 record over 12 seasons at Nicholls. The Colonels were 11-23 overall and 6-12 in Southland Conference play last season.
