    This article talks about the role/numbers of assistant coaches in college basketball, and they briefly interviewed our staff at the end:


    Colorado, in the Pac-12, does not have its assistants specialize. They rotate as a scout for coming opponents. The assistant Jean Prioleau scouted Oregon State for a game on Wednesday, which Colorado won.

    “I’m just making sure I know the calls, and maybe I see an offensive set that’s about to happen,” Prioleau said. “I can call it out or tell the guys what’s going to happen.”

    The Colorado coaches sit in the same order for every game: the assistant Rodney Billups next to the scorer’s table, followed by the director of player development Tom Abatemarco, the head coach Tad Boyle, Prioleau, and the assistant Mike Rohn.

    “We have on our staff only five suits,” Rohn said. “Some staffs have a million of them over there.”
