The Sacramento State Hornets have their next head men’s basketball coach as University has hired David Patrick as the 15th head coach in program history.
“We’re thrilled to welcome David to Sacramento State to lead our men’s basketball program,” Athletic Director Mark Orr said. “David’s vision for our program and his values as a leader of student-athletes align perfectly with our University. He has a wide range of experience, and a proven track record of recruiting and developing student-athletes to meet their goals. I look forward to building a championship basketball program under his leadership. The future is very bright for Hornet basketball.”
Patrick is 46 years old and has stops as an assistant coach at Nicholls State, St. Mary’s (CA), LSU, TCU, Arkansas and most recently Oklahoma last season.
Patrick did have a two-year stint as the head coach at UC Riverside from 2018-2020 where he compiled a 27-38 (.415) overall record and an 11-21 (.344) record in Big West play.
David Patrick replaces interim head coach Brandon Laird who led the Hornets to an 11-18 record in 2021-22 after Brian Katz abruptly retired prior to the start of the season.
