Former Notre Dame basketball player named Grambling State's coach

GRAMBLING, La. – Lamar assistant coach and former Notre Dame player Joseph Price accepted his first head coaching job at Grambling State.

Grambling officials, who announced the hiring Tuesday afternoon, have scheduled an introduction Wednesday at the university’s basketball stadium.

Price has been a college assistant since 2002, with stops at IUPUI, Ball State and Morehead State before joining Lamar’s staff in May of 2011.

Price had a standout career for Notre Dame under then-coach Digger Phelps in the 1980s before playing professionally overseas for 13 seasons.

Price takes over for Bobby Washington, who was relieved of coaching duties and “reassigned” by Grambling to another position in the university after the team went 4-24 last season.
