PRIOR TO BSU:  Ryan Patterson, a familiar face to the Mid-American Conference, came to Ball State after spending the 2011-12 season at Kent State as an assistant coach. He will begin his second season as an assistant coach for the Cardinals basketball team.  Patterson’s primary focus is working with the guards.

In his first season at Ball State, Patterson helped the Cardinals reach the Final 16 of the 2013 Women’s National Invitation Tournament with a roster featuring just seven healthy players over the final 11 games, and as few as six at one point in the season.

Patterson also helped Ball State post one of the most dramatic turnarounds in Mid-American Conference history as the Cardinals earned the No. 2 seed in the MAC Tournament with a 12-4 league mark.

Before joining the Golden Flashes staff in 2011-12, he was the associate head coach at the Findlay from 2004-11. Patterson also had coaching stints at West Liberty State College (2002-04) where he served as an assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s basketball programs. He began his coaching career on Kent State’s staff in 2000, where he helped the Golden Flashes to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances (2001 & 2002) which included advancing to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight in 2002 along with a No. 12 national ranking. Out of the five programs Patterson has coached, four of them have competed in post season play.  Patterson earned his bachelors at Malone College in 1999 and a master degree from Kent State in 2002.
