UTC's Paris Earns Coaching Honor Roll Mention
Wednesday, April 8, 2020
Chattanooga Mocs Men’s Basketball Coach Lamont Paris earned his first head coaching honor. He was named to the Achieving Coaching Excellence College Basketball Honor Roll Monday afternoon.
His Mocs claimed their 25th 20-win campaign with a 20-13 record. It was a strong step forward for the program. Matt Ryan (2nd) and Ramon Vila (3rd) made the All-Southern Conference squad as the team had the largest wins improvement (8) since the 1997 NCAA Sweet 16 team’s nine.
We just finished summarizing the 2019-20 season’s historical touches.
It was a 4-part series starting with how the squad made its mark in the history books followed by a look at the top scoring trio of Ryan, Vila and David Jean-Baptiste. The third looked into the rare occurrence Ryan accomplished before an overall look at the growth of the program in Paris’ three seasons.
Paris was joined on the list by ACE’s Head of the Class Coach Leonard Hamilton (Florida State) among others. It’s the inaugural class of coaches by the organization.
