Josh Postorino

Position:
Director of Basketball Operations

Josh Postorino joined head coach Oliver Purnell at DePaul on April 21, 2010 after working with Purnell at Clemson for the previous three seasons. Postorino enters his 10th year at the collegiate level in the 2010-11 season and is the director of basketball operations with the Blue Demons.
After serving as Clemson's director of operations for the 2007-08 season, he was promoted to an assistant coach position in the summer of 2008. As an assistant coach over the last two seasons on Purnell's staff, he compiled a 44-20 record with two NCAA Tournament appearances.

Postorino joined Purnell's original Clemson staff before taking an assistant coach position at Marshall in 2003. He coached at Marshall for four seasons before returning to Purnell's staff at Clemson as director of basketball operations in 2007.

In his three seasons at Clemson, the Tigers made three NCAA Tournament appearances with three straight 20-win campaigns. Additionally, he also played a major role in the signing of a top 15 recruiting class for 2009-10. The Tigers finished two of the three seasons ranked in the top 25 and posted a 74-47 win over third-ranked Duke on Feb. 4, 2009. That victory was the program's largest margin of victory ever against a ranked opponent.

Postorino was the first player signed by Purnell at Dayton. He lettered all four seasons (1995-99), but his playing career was cut short due to medical complications. He played in 75 career games with the Flyers and graduated from Dayton with a Marketing degree in 1999.

He spent the 2000-01 season as the director of operations at Dayton before moving into a full-time assistant coaching spot under Purnell for his final two years with the Flyers. In his three years as a full-time staff member, he helped Dayton to an overall record of 66-30 (.688) and three postseason appearances. He helped the Flyers to a 24-6 overall record in 2002-03 and No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

A 33-year old native of Clearwater, Fla., he and his wife Jennifer have a son, Brody, who was born on April 3, 2008.
