Presented by Cookout, Andy Demetra catches up with men's basketball associate head coach Eric Reveno
Eric Reveno, served 10 years as the head coach at the University of Portland, joined Josh Pastner’s men’s basketball staff at Georgia Tech as assistant coach on May 6, 2016. He was promoted to associate head coach on Nov. 1, 2019.
The former post player oversaw one of the Yellow Jackets’ great successes in 2016-17 in the development of 6-10 center Ben Lammers, who became a second-team All-ACC performer and the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year. He also helped develop another former reserve forward, Abdoulaye Gueye, into a significant contributor for the Yellow Jackets in his final two seasons, and helped transfer James Banks III develop into one of the ACC’s top defensive players, making the ACC’s All-Defensive team twice.
Reveno’s penchant for analytics has led the Jackets to adopt advanced new methods and technologies to help the team’s performance, and this summer he has led an athletic department-wide effort to promote voting among student-athletes, which resulted in the NCAA declaring Election Day a mandatory day off for all student-athletes across the nation.
The Alexander-Tharpe Fund is the fundraising arm of Georgia Tech athletics, providing scholarship, operations and facilities support for Georgia Tech’s 400-plus student-athletes. Be a part of developing Georgia Tech’s Everyday Champions and helping the Yellow Jackets compete for championships at the highest levels of college athletics by supporting the A-T Fund’s Annual Athletic Scholarship Fund, which directly provides scholarships for Georgia Tech student-athletes, and Athletics Initiative 2020, Georgia Tech athletics’ ongoing $125 million initiative to allow Tech to recruit the nation’s most elite student-athletes, build a better student-athlete once they arrive on The Flats and, ultimately, win!
