Current Arizona Wildcats associate head coach Joe Pasternack has emerged as a serious candidate for the head coaching position at UC Santa Barbara, sources tell FanRag Sports.
It would be Pasternack’s second head coaching role of his career. He previously led the New Orleans Privateers from 2007-11. Over the course of his four seasons there, the program went 54-60.
After the New Orleans native left his hometown team, he became an assistant on Arizona head coach Sean Miller’s staff. He was promoted to associate head coach in 2013, a role he has maintained since then.
