St. John’s Red Storm men’s basketball assistant coach Greg St. Jean has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches 30 Under 30 list for 2017-18, which recognizes a group of up-and-coming young coaches in college basketball. St. Jean is among 15 Division I coaches, and one of just two from the Big East Conference, to receive this distinguished honor.
The 27-year-old St. Jean recently completed his third season on Chris Mullin's staff at St. John’s, and is the primary manager of the Red Storm’s player development program, scouting and game planning responsibilities, as well as the team’s video operations and statistical analysis. During his tenure in Queens, three St. John's players have been named to the All-Big East Freshman Team, including Shamorie Ponds; who this past season, elevated his game to All-Big East First Team status and led the conference in scoring before capturing the Haggerty Award last week. St. Jean has also been instrumental in the development of transfers at St. John’s. Most recently, he helped Marvin Clark II and Justin Simon enjoy career seasons in 2017-18 after training under his tutelage during their year in residency following their arrivals from Michigan State and Arizona, respectively.
