Treloar returning from NBA to LSU as associate coach
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU coach Johnny Jones says he's bringing former Tigers assistant John Treloar back to the program as an associate coach.
The 58-year-old Treloar, who was on John Brady's LSU staff from 2004 to 2008, has spent the past five years as player personnel director for the NBA's Phoenix Suns.
Jones says Treloar's experience at both the college and professional levels "will be of great value" to LSU.
During Treloar's four seasons at LSU, the Tigers appeared to two NCAA tournaments, advancing all the way to the Final Four in 2006. Treloar also was an assistant coach with Indiana when the Hoosiers advanced to the Final Four in 2002.
In between his time at LSU and Phoenix, Treloar was head coach of the NBA Developmental League's Erie Bayhawks.
