Greg Paulus has been added to the Ohio State Buckeyes men’s basketball staff as video coordinator, head coach Thad Matta announced Thursday. You remember Paulus? Of course you do, ESPN over-saturated their coverage of him.

Paulus had a very successful college basketball career at Duke (2006-09) and a one-year stint playing quarterback at Syracuse while pursuing a master’s degree. As you recall he wasn’t very good at college football. But he did play on four NCAA?Tournament teams with the Blue Devils, helping them to a 112-28 record while leading the team in assists in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

He spent the 2010-11 campaign as an assistant coach at Navy and will now be primarily responsible for breaking down team and opponent video for scouting and analysis for the two-time defending Big Ten champion Buckeyes.

So Paulus has now experience in the Big Ten, Big East, and ACC. (Navy is an independent)

“We are excited to have Greg join our program,” Matta said. “I have known Greg dating back to when I recruited him out of high school. He brings a wealth of knowledge as a young man who has played basketball at the highest level in addition to his year as a full time Division I coach. He is a rising star in the coaching business.”

As a freshman in 2006, Paulus was a member of the ACC All-Freshman first team, the ACC?All-Tournament second team and a second-team freshman All-American while averaging 6.7 ppg and 5.2 apg. He remains one of just four freshmen in ACC history to lead the league in assists, joining North Carolina’s Ed Cota (1997), Georgia Tech’s Kenny Anderson (1990) and current American coach and former Virginia standout Jeff Jones (1979) as freshman to accomplish the feat.

Paulus was invited to the New Orleans Saints minicamp in both May and June of 2010, but was not offered a contract.
