A former general manager and coach for the New Orleans Hornets, Jeff Bower, has reached an agreement on a contract with Marist.

Bower was an associate head coach with the Red Foxes for five years in the early ’90s, but has spent parts of the past three decades in the NBA. He spent 14 years with the Hornets and has been scouting for the Dallas Mavericks this season.

Marist went 10-21, finishing 6-12 in the MAAC, under former head coach Chuck Martin last season.
