Former Auburn star Mamadou N'Diaye hired at Georgia Tech

Posted: Updated:

Former Auburn star Mamadou N'Diaye is the newest member of basketball staff at Georgia Tech.

N'Diaye was hired as an assistant by Yellow Jackets coach Brian Gregory. N'Diaye had been an assistant the past three seasons at Coastal Carolina under former Auburn coach Cliff Ellis.

He interviewed for one of the openings on Bruce Pearl's staff last month.

"We are very excited about adding Mamadou to our staff," Gregory said in a press release through the school. "A tremendous teacher of the game who excels at player development, Mamadou has played for and coached under one of the best in the business in Cliff Ellis. He will also expand our national and international recruiting scope. He is a true professional in every sense of the word."

N'Diaye was a two-time All-SEC pick as a player. He is Auburn's career leader in blocked shots.
