A South Coast university has its first new men’s basketball coach in nearly two decades.
Joe Pasternack was introduced as UC Santa Barbara’s new men’s head coach Tuesday.
Pasternack has a long history in college basketball, working on the coaching staffs at Cal and Arizona, and serving as head coach at the University of New Orleans.
He takes over for Bob Williams, whose contract wasn’t renewed this year after 19 year of guiding the Gauchos. The Gauchos finished 6-22 this season.
