Siena hires Patsos, not Toole

Written by Craig Meyer on .

While Andy Toole may still remain a hot commodity on the annual coaching carousel, he will not be the next coach at Siena.

After it was reported that Toole was among the three finalists to become the Saints' next coach, the school has hired Loyola (Maryland) coach Jimmy Patsos to the same position.

The news was first reported by CBS-6 in Albany and was later confirmed by Mark Singelais of the (Albany) Times Union.

It's probably too soon to presume that Toole will be at Robert Morris next season, as there are still schools like Hofstra looking for a coach (along with any unforeseen jobs opening up), but for now, he is still the Colonials' head coach.
