San Jose State announced that Colorado assistant Jean Prioleau would be its new head coach on Friday night.
Prioleau is coming off of a successful seven-year stint with the Buffaloes in which he helped the program to five 20-win seasons and seven postseason appearances as he replaces former head coach Doug Wojcik, who resigned suddenly on July 11.
According to the release, Prioleau has been given a five-year contract as he will be officially introduced on Monday at 10:30 a.m. in the Student Union Theater.
After a successful playing career at Fordham in which he was a two-time all-Patriot League player, Prioleau started as an assistant at his alma mater before spending time at Wichita State, Marquette and TCU before eventually landing at Colorado.
An 18-year assistant coach, this will be Prioleau’s first chance to be a head coach as he’s been apart of a very successful program over the better part of the last decade.
