MU women's basketball team adds assistant coach

Sep. 20, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University women's basketball added Devrinn Paul to its coaching staff.

Paul replaces Tamisha Augustin who went to work at Virginia Commonwealth University.

He was the University of Louisville's video coordinator for the past three years after serving as a graduate assistant for two years.

"We are excited to have DP," Marshall head coach Matt Daniel said. "He has been involved in two national championship games in the last five years and has worked for a coach that plays at the tempo we are working toward."

Paul was part of a Louisville program that lost the 2013 national championship game to Connecticut. The Cardinals also went to the NCAA Final Four in 2009.

His duties as video coordinator included preparing scouting reports, producing highlight videos and game film, helping with recruiting videos and helping develop game plans. He also coordinated a team of male practice players for competition.

"I am honored to become a part of coach Daniel's staff," Paul said. "I'm confident my scouting experience will compliment coach Daniel's in game philosophy. I take pride in becoming a part of the great tradition at Marshall University. I am anxious to get going and looking forward to a special year in women's basketball."

Paul has a master's from Louisville and graduated from Kentucky State University.

He moved to Louisville from Hempstead, N.Y., at age 12 and attended Waggener High School.
