LAS CRUCES, N.M. - New Mexico State men’s basketball head coach Marvin Menzies has hired Ryan Dozier as program specialist, the first-year coach announced Monday, Aug. 13. Dozier joins the Aggies after spending two years as the head manager at Louisville.

Menzies said he was happy to have an opportunity to add another branch of the Rick Pitino and Cardinal family. Assistant coach Matt Grady also has Louisville ties.

“Ryan is someone who brings an impeccable work ethic,” Menzies said. “I worked with him for the duration of my time at Louisville. He was a supervisor of 10 managers and he had extensive duties as the head manager. Ryan’s character and attitude towards his job are two of his greatest attributes.”

Dozier’s responsibilities include assisting with practice, pre-game duties and administrative tasks. As a four-year student manager at Louisville, Dozier was not only a supervisor for two seasons but he also set-up player instruction and prepared the team before practice and game days.

“I’m excited to work for coach Menzies,” Dozier said. “I worked with him for two years at U of L and I know I can learn a lot from him and the assistant coaches. I’m excited to be here so I can start learning how to coach and what goes into it. My ultimate goal is to hopefully one day be a head coach somewhere.”

Dozier, a Louisville, Ky., native, majored in political science and graduated from duPont Manual High School where he was a four-year member of the Crimson basketball team.
