Nicholls State University will introduce Austin Claunch as the new men’s basketball coach at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in the Harold J. Callais Memorial Recreation Center.

It will be held in conjunction with the athletic department’s spring signing day event.

Claunch, who was named head coach for the men's basketball program on March 29, will officially be introduced at the event. Claunch was the assistant coach at Nicholls for two seasons, helping the Colonels to a share of the Southland Conference regular-season championship. 

The spring signing event features all sports except for football, which held its press conference in February. Coaches from each sport will provide insight on their signees, as well as their program.

Admission is free of charge.  Rotolo’s Pizzeria is sponsoring the event and will provide food.
