Lewis Preston was officially announced as Kennesaw St. Owls basketball coach in a Wednesday release by the university. He'll be formally introduced at a press conference soon.
Preston on the move from Penn State, where he coached for three years as Ed DeChellis' assistant:
This is a tremendous opportunity, and I am thrilled and humbled to have been chosen by Kennesaw State. My focus has always been on developing my student-athletes, both athletically and academically, to their fullest potential. I can't wait to get started on hiring our assistant coaches and recruiting the additional players that will complement our current team. I am happy to be coming to KSU as it kicks its athletics program into high gear.
During his time at Florida, Preston coached noteworthy post players such as Al Horford and Joakim Noah. More to come on Preston soon.
