Jeff Goodman senior college basketball writer for had this to say about the recent hiring of Frank Matrisciano:

“We talk about all the head coaching movement in the offseason, but one of the most significant offseason hirings is that of renowned trainer Frank Matrisciano coming on board to Memphis. This is a huge coup for Josh Pastner and the Tigers program. This is a guy that is considered arguably the elite guy in his field, and this should pay dividends soon. I’ve heard guys like Blake Griffin, Gilbert Arenas and even Danny Ainge, who had former Celtic Gabe Pruitt, work out with Matrisciano. Terrific outside-the-box hire by Memphis”
