“KENNESAW, Ga. (March 20, 2014) – Jimmy Lallathin, who served as interim head coach for the final 16 games of the 2013-14 season, has been named head men’s basketball coach, Kennesaw State Director of Athletics Vaughn Williams announced on Thursday.
Lallathin, who began the just-concluded season as associate head coach, was elevated to interim head coach on Jan. 2 when head coach Lewis Preston took a leave of absence. He becomes the Owls’ fifth head coach since the men’s basketball program debuted in 1985.
“I am very enthusiastic about entrusting the men’s basketball program to Jimmy Lallathin,” Williams said. “He has been a part of Owls Basketball for the last three years and understands the culture that we are establishing here at Kennesaw State. He is the right fit at this time.
“I was impressed with the way he took over the team and conducted himself this past season under difficult circumstances,” Williams added. “The team responded under his leadership, playing with a high level of energy and competiveness that led to exciting basketball. I am confident that under Jimmy’s direction, the basketball program will continue to improve and become competitive in the Atlantic Sun Conference.”
