The third episode of DePaul Hoops TV this offseason looks back at last Thursday when DePaul coach Dave Leitao was out and about on the northside of Chicago. Leitao sang the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley Field on Thursday afternoon before returning to Lincoln Park for an event at McGrath-Phillips Arena.
There was a festive and all-encompassing celebration at McGrath-Phillips Arena last Thursday that brought the DePaul community together in welcoming new men's basketball coach Dave Leitao back to Lincoln Park.
The Dave Leitao who has returned to assume the mantle of transforming DePaul into a consistent winner and a force in college basketball is a deeper, more indomitable version of the coach who led the Blue Demons to three postseason tournaments more than a decade ago.
Before Thursday's Meet and Greet, Dave Leitao is scheduled to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" at Wrigley Field. DePaul Hoops TV features his prep for the seventh inning.
New associate head coach Rick Carter is exactly what the Blue Demons need---a relentless and seemingly tireless 110 percent work ethic kind of a guy who engenders trust through his genuine personality.
DePaul head coach Dave Leitao announced today that Patrick Sellers has joined the program as an assistant coach. Sellers joins associate head coach Rick Carter and assistant coach Billy Garrett on Blue Demon sidelines.
