Jean Prioleau Named Assistant Coach

Tom Crean moved quickly to fill Bo Elllis' retirement. On Wednesday, former Wichita State assistant Jean Prioleau was hired as an assistant coach. Prioleau, who prepped in New Jersey and starred in the backcourt at Fordham more than a decade ago (and led the Rams to a win over MU, if memory serves), fills a critical need for Crean's staff - - - familiarity with the East Coast. Also, with the influx of backcourt talent into the program, Prioleau should play a key role in player development.

Welcome to MU, Jean.
