St. John’s announced Wednesday that they have hired Dan Matic as the new Director of Basketball Operations and Dru Anthrop as the team’s new graduate assistant, for the men’s team. After two years as an assistant coach at South Alabama, Matic returns to his native New York. Anthrop recently spent the past two years as film coordinator for the Indiana Pacers organization.

He will be providing day-to-day administrative support within the program. He has many responsibilities including coordinating travel, the team’s calendar, game day operations, and community service. Matic was also an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Eastern Illinois for the 2012-2013 season. He began his collegiate coaching career at Olney Central College in Olney, Ill in 2012-2013.

A four-year letter winner and team captain at Purdue, Anthrop was part of three NCAA Tournament teams (’10,’11,’12) and won a Big Ten Championship (’10).He was one of the only six Big Ten players to be named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court in 2011-2012.
