Siena hires a basketball coach -- and his personality

jimmy patsos siena press conference

"I've always envied this job and wanted this job."

Siena officially named Jimmy Patsos as its new men's head basketball coach Wednesday afternoon. And the Capital Region just got a new, big character.

Patsos is moving to Siena from Loyola (Maryland), where he was 145-135 in nine seasons. (The Greyounds are in the same conference as Siena, but they're moving to the Patriot League next season.) But when he took over the program, it had gone 1-27 the season before. Over the two most recent seasons the Greyhounds were 47-21, with a trip to the NCAA tournament in 2012.

Accompanying that track record is the sonic boom of his personality and reputation.
