Assistant Coach Patrick Sellers

Patrick Sellers is in his fifth season on the UConn staff in 2008-09. He was the Director of Men’s Basketball Operations at UConn for three seasons and was promoted to the position of assistant coach in the spring of 2007.

Sellers came to Connecticut in 2004-05 after spending the 2003-04 season as an assistant coach at the University of Massachusetts, where he served as a recruiter and was instrumental in the development of the UMass frontcourt.

Patrick is the older brother of former Husky standout and team captain Rod Sellers, who played at UConn from 1989-1992.

Sellers moved to UMass from his alma mater, Central Connecticut State University, where he spent four seasons with head coach Howie Dickenman, a former UConn assistant coach. Patrick helped the Blue Devils to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2000 and 2002, winning the Northeast Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championship in both of those seasons. During his time as an assistant coach at Central Connecticut, his responsibilities included recruiting, inside player development, scouting and assisting with on-court practices. He also served as a co-director of the Howie Dickenman Basketball School.

Prior to his time at Central Connecticut State, Sellers served as the head coach at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in New Britain, Conn. In his first season as the varsity head coach in 1998, Sellers led the Saints to a Northwest Conference Championship. His team also made back-to-back appearances in the state playoffs during the 1998 and 1999 seasons. Sellers originally joined the basketball staff at St. Thomas Aquinas in 1994 as the junior varsity coach and an assistant under head coach Jerry DeGregorio.

A 1991 graduate of Central Connecticut State with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, Sellers served as the Blue Devils captain during his senior season, and was named East Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 1991. He led the team in rebounding in both his junior and senior seasons, finishing his career with 581 rebounds. He played professionally in Europe in the British Basketball League during the 1992-93 season.

Born December 28, 1968, Patrick resides in Vernon.
