FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - David Patrick has been hired as an assistant coach on the staff of new TCU basketball coach Jamie Dixon.

Patrick spent the past four seasons as an assistant at LSU.

TCU announced his hiring Wednesday.

Before his time at LSU, Patrick was a scout with the Houston Rockets. He also was on the staff for four years at St. Mary's when the Gaels made two NCAA Tournament appearances, and a year at Nicholls State.

Patrick, who was born in Bermuda and grew up in Australia, played one season at Syracuse where he was a member of the 1996 NCAA Final Four team that finished as the national runner-up. He then transferred to Louisiana-Lafayette where he played for three seasons.
