Avery Johnson has announced the addition of former AAU coach Scott Pospichal to his staff at Alabama via a UA Athletics press release. Pospichal comes to the Crimson Tide with over 30 years of coaching experience at developmental levels, including a decade-long stint with the Texas Titans, one of the premier developmental basketball teams in the nation. During Pospichal’s time, the team won four AAU championships.

“Scott is a legendary AAU coach and we are very excited for him to join our program at the University of Alabama,” Johnson said in the release. “During his time with the Texas Titans, he has helped develop numerous players who have went on to do great things at the college and professional levels. He is an excellent coach who specializes in the offensive part of the game and is a great communicator.”

Pospichal also has experience at the collegiate level, serving as an assistant coach at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte in the mid 1980s and head coach of Palm Beach Community College from 1987 to 1995. He compiled a .715 winning percentage and left as the Mocs’ all-time winningest coach.

“I feel like I’ve received the golden ticket for this opportunity to be the assistant basketball coach at the University of Alabama,” Pospichal said. “Coach Johnson and I have had a relationship dating back for a few years now. I have always believed in him so much. This is a tremendous opportunity to work with him and work at an iconic university and terrific program like Alabama. I am absolutely thrilled out of my mind to get there and get started.”

Pospichal coached Johnson’s son, Avery Johnson, Jr., along with Kentucky standout Julius Randle at the AAU level.
