JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas State men’s basketball coach Mike Balado is once again on the hunt for a new assistant coach.

Casey Stanley is leaving for a chance to go back to his alma mater. Iona announced Thursday that he’ll join the Gaels coaching staff.

Stanley spent the past 3 seasons with the Red Wolves. If Iona sounds familiar, that’s because Hall of Famer Rick Pitino was hired as their new head coach earlier this month. Balado was a longtime assistant under Pitino at Louisville before getting a head coach opportunity at A-State.
