SMART ROUNDS OUT STAFF WITH ADDITION OF LIND AS VIDEO COORDINATOR

RICHMOND, Va. – Head Coach Shaka Smart did not have to look far to fill the role of video coordinator on his coaching staff for the upcoming 2011-12 campaign.

Smart announced the hiring of Donny Lind, a graduate manager with last year's Final Four team, to fill the role for the Black & Gold.

"We're very excited about adding Donny as a full-time member of our staff," Smart said. "He's an extremely hard worker who possesses a great mind for the game."

Lind, who is working on finishing up his Master's Degree through VCU's Center for Sport Leadership, came to VCU after earning his Bachelor's Degree in Economics from Loyola University Maryland in 2010.

The New Knoxville, Ohio native spent the 2010-11 season as the right-hand man to Video Coordinator Matt Fleming, who is now serving in the same role at DePaul University.

During Lind's time at Loyola, he served as a student manager for the men's basketball team. His final two years with the Greyhounds, he spent in the Video Coordinator role for the program.  

Lind currently resides in Richmond with his wife, Ciara, and newborn daughter, Magnolia Grace.
