Postorino, 29, a native of Clearwater, FL, where he still holds 17 school records at Clearwater High, is in his fourth season as an assistant coach with the Thundering Herd. He came to Marshall after a short stint as an assistant coach at Clemson. He attended the University of Dayton where he was the first player recruited by then Flyers coach Oliver Purnell.
"Josh is one of the brightest young coaches I have ever been around," Jirsa said. "He has a great future as a coach. We had success together at Dayton and he brings that winning mentality with him to Marshall."
His playing career at Dayton was cut short by a medical condition, but he remained on scholarship through his senior season and got an early jump on his coaching career. After his playing career ended, he spent one season as Coordinator of Basketball Operations before becoming a full-time assistant for the 2001-02 season.
"I am excited to be in Huntington and to be working with Coach Jirsa," Postorino said. "Coach Jirsa is a guy I believe in. I believe in what he can do and I am excited about the kind of program we can have here at Marshall."
He will be given key roles in recruiting, scouting and player development.
