Purdue University men’s basketball head coach Matt Painter will speak at next week’s Rising Coaches Conference in Las Vegas.
A Purdue University alumnus, Painter is entering his eighth season as head coach there.
He got his start in coaching at Washington & Jefferson College immediately after graduating from Purdue. He held assistant coaching positions at Barton College, Eastern Illinois, and Southern Illinois, before being promoted to head coach at the latter in 2003.
He then served as associate head coach at Purdue for one season before taking the head coaching job.
He’s also coached multiple United States international teams.
