Tom Barrise, who served as interim coach for two games and has been an assistant under Lawrence Frank and Kiki Vandeweghe, will now be assisting Rod Thorn. Barrise will be Thorn's "special assistant" for the remainder of the season and will help the president prepare for the draft and free agency. "He’ll do a lot of helping me scout because it’s obviously of utmost importance," Thorn said.
