Portland hires Reveno as men’s basketball coach

Portland, OR (Sports Network) – The University of Portland announced the
hiring of Eric Reveno as the men’s basketball coach on Monday.

Reveno, 40, spent the last nine seasons at Stanford, seven of which he was the
assistant coach for Mike Montgomery. He takes over for Michael Holton, who was
fired after compiling a 54-91 record in five seasons with the Pilots,
including a 20-50 mark in West Coast Conference play. Portland finished 11-18
overall and 5-9 in the WCC this past season.

“We are thrilled to bring in Eric Reveno as our head coach,” said university
president Reverend E. William Beauchamp said. “After a thorough national
search, Eric stood out as a perfect fit to come in and develop our basketball
program while providing our student-athletes with a quality leader on and off
the court. He has established himself as a premier figure in player
development and his values pertaining to academics and personal development
are a perfect parallel to the University’s commitment to teaching, faith and
service. His passion, work ethic and determination will create excitement
among everyone associated with the University of Portland.”

Reveno has gained notoriety for working with low post players such as Mark
Madsen, Jarron and Jason Collins and Matt Haryasz among others.
