I'm sure you guys all remember Biko Paris, right? Biko played four seasons for the Boston College Eagles and was part of a dynamic scoring backcourt alongside Reggie Jackson. As you probably know, Reggie Jackson left after his junior year and was drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Biko graduated that same year and pursued a career overseas in Europe. After a brief stint overseas, Biko Paris has returned to the city of Boston.

According to a current assistant coach at Boston College, Paris will be joining Joe Jones and his coaching staff at Boston University.

Jones was the head assistant coach for the Eagles during Biko's final year at BC, before taking the head coaching job at Boston University. This is a great opportunity for Biko Paris and it's obvious that his high basketball IQ was recognized by Jones during his time at BC. The Eagles do not play the Boston University Terriers this season, but next time they do, make sure to look over at the BU bench and you'll see two familiar faces.
