HOUSTON - Former Lubbock Christian student-athlete Matt Read has joined the University of Houston men's basketball program as its video coordinator, head coach James Dickey announced Thursday.

As the Cougars' video coordinator, Read will coordinate film exchange and opponents' scouting as well as assisting in other aspects of the program. He will work closely with all members of the coaching staff in game preparation and creating scouting reports.

In addition to his administrative duties with the Cougars in 2011-12, Read also plans to work on his master's degree in leadership from Lubbock Christian.

"We are very excited about Matt joining our staff," Dickey said. "He has a very good basketball background and played for some outstanding coaches. Matt will be a great asset to our staff and student-athletes."

Read joined the Cougars after finishing his bachelor's degree at Lubbock Christian. There, he served as team captain on the Chaparrals men's basketball team and graduated summa cum laude with a 3.86 grade-point average while studying organizational management.

He received the LCU Distinguished Achievement Award as the Top Male Student from the Organizational Management Department and was a member of the All-Sooner Athletic Conference Team and the league's All-Academic Team.

On the court, he averaged 11.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game to rank among the Chaps' top-two individual leaders in both categories. Read posted a career-high 26 points at Eastern New Mexico in late November.

Before studying at Lubbock Christian, Read spent the 2009-10 season at Utah and was a member of the 2010 Mountain West Conference All-Academic Team. In 2008-09, he competed at Collin College, where he was an NJCAA All-American and earned his associate's degree in sports management.

 

 

He began his collegiate career at UT Arlington, where he played his first two seasons. In 2008, he received the Scholar-Athlete Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement and was a member of the Southland Conference Commissioner's Academic Honor Roll.

Read is single and lives in Houston.
