LSU men’s basketball assistant coach Cody Toppert has been hired as the Capital City Go-Go’s new head coach, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Toppert replaces Mike Williams, who will join the Utah Jazz as an assistant coach.

Toppert has significant experience coaching at both the college and professional level. Last season, the Tigers were just 14-19, but it was just the first season at head coach Matt McMahon’s tenure in Baton Rouge.

Before coming to LSU, Toppert spent three years at Memphis (2019-22) where he was part of their 2021 NIT championship team. He was also an assistant coach for the Phoenix Suns (2018-19) and the head coach of the then-D-League’s Northern Arizona Suns.

Before becoming a coach, Toppert played professionally in the D-League and in Europe after a successful four-year college career at Cornell.
