Jason Richards begins his sixth total season at Pitt and his third as the Panthers’ video coordinator/director of analytics. Richards spent two seasons as Pitt’s Graduate Manager, while completing a Masters of Business Administration.

Richards played four years at Davidson (2004-08) and along with Stephen Curry, helped guide the Wildcats to an NCAA Elite Eight appearance in 2008.

A Barrington, Ill. native, Richards’ father Tom and mother Mary Beth both played basketball at Pitt from 1972-76. His sister Lindsay, a former McDonald’s All-American at Iowa, is an assistant coach on the Pitt women’s basketball staff.
